Steady and sure progress. Now, the trace below doesn't explicitly mention any
nvidia symbols, but this line must disappear before anybody will bother to
read your report.

Remove the module. This does not mean unload, this means "never load in the
first place". Then reproduce the problem. If you are successful, send a new
email (not pinned to this thread) with a subject a la "kernel BUG at
mm/mmap.c:2214". State that the kernel is not tainted.

At this point all you can do is wait. Good luck!
