Looking over the traces there seem to be two areas called out.

The first is the fib_trie resize BUG_ON that was triggered due to the 
parent and child not being associated.  I think that might be due to 
memory corruption as I cannot find any spots where we are resizing 
without correctly setting up the parent-child relationship of the nodes 

The other spot that is showing up is ppp_shutdown_interface and it's 
related path.  It looks like there are a couple of patches you could try 
back-porting to see if it resolves the issue.  If they do then perhaps 
they should be considered candidates for stable:

8cb775bc0a3 ("ppp: fix device unregistration upon netns deletion")
58a89ecaca5 ("ppp: fix lockdep splat in ppp_dev_uninit()")
