No problem, the fact the patch booted lets me know that calling
PageBuddy() on an invalid page had the same problem as calling
page_zone(). This is no real suprise as both need a valid struct page and
virtual mem_map shows up these sort of suprises that don't occur
elsewhere. Obvious now :/

Thanks for testing. A proper patch will be posted soon.

Total aside, a message should have been printed out here with
"sizeof(struct page) = ??" when loglevel was set to 8. I wanted it so I
could work out PFNs from the faulting addresses. Can you find such a
string in the output of dmesg?

That doesn't look particularly healthy! Is this a known problem?
