I'm working on reproducing the problem. I've hit it only once. My stress
tests were using dd instead of make like yours did and my
compilation-orientated test would not have been hitting compaction as
hard.

The theory I'm working on is that it's a PageSwapCache page that was
unmapped and not remapped (remap_swapcache == 0) in move_to_new_page().
In this case, the page would be migrated, left in place and unlocked.
Later when a swap fault occurred, the migration PTE is found and the
bug_on triggers i.e. the bug check is no longer valid because it is
possible for an unlocked migration pte to be left behind.

Trying to reproduce with some instrumentation in place documenting pages
left behind but haven't managed to trigger it a second time yet.
