    I suspect that the reap timer is innocent and what we have is simply
    scribbled-on slab metadata. Which means it could be anything at all.

    One last thing: could you please stick a

    printk(KERN_EMERG "destroying slab %s\n", cachep->name);

    at the start of slab_destroy()? That'll help narrow it down.

    Could you also punt me over the .config? If I can make it happen, the
    binary search will find it. But it probably won't happen here.
