The call trace is always the same:

[ 2672.994366]  [<ffffffff8130063c>] do_sys_poll+0x4dc/0x860
[ 2672.994366]  [<ffffffff81300eb9>] SyS_ppoll+0x1a9/0x310

And if you look at the poll implementation, the important part is this
(fs/ select.c, do_sys_poll)

        fdcount = do_poll(nfds, head, &table, end_time);
        poll_freewait(&table);

do_poll calls the poll routine of the file descriptors which cause
"enqueuing of something" via poll wait callback. For poll, that's the
__pollwait routine in select.c:

static void __pollwait(struct file *filp, wait_queue_head_t *wait_address,
                                poll_table *p)
{
        struct poll_wqueues *pwq = container_of(p, struct poll_wqueues, pt);
        struct poll_table_entry *entry = poll_get_entry(pwq);
        if (!entry)
                return;
        entry->filp = get_file(filp);
        entry->wait_address = wait_address;
        entry->key = p->_key;
        init_waitqueue_func_entry(&entry->wait, pollwake);
        entry->wait.private = pwq;
        add_wait_queue(wait_address, &entry->wait);
}

because of the close, this routine will be called with the peer_wait
wait_queue_head of the non-closed socket of the socket pair as
wait_address argument. And poll_freewait calls free_poll_entry for all
entries on the poll table which is

static void free_poll_entry(struct poll_table_entry *entry)
{
        remove_wait_queue(entry->wait_address, &entry->wait);
        fput(entry->filp);
}

but by this time, the wait_address points to freed memory because the
only thing which kept the socket it belonged to alive after the
corresponding file descriptor was closed was the reference the other
socket held. But that was dropped by unix_dgram_sendmsg upon detecting a
dead peer.
