ffff8000113adb60 <__dev_set_rx_mode>:

Function starts at ffff8000113adb60, the instruction with problems is

ffff8000113adba8:       f9402281        ldr     x1, [x20,#64]

Which suggests ops is NULL. The #64 also matches with

> [   50.688935] Unable to handle kernel read from unreadable memory at
> virtual address 0000000000000040

How did dev->netdev_ops become NULL?
