That's drivers/video/fbmem.c: fb_release(), and the "Code:"
disassembly shows that it is

1b: e8 f7 c0 29 00 callq xyz
20: 48 8b 93 b8 03 00 00 mov 0x3b8(%rbx),%rdx
27:* 48 8b 42 10 mov 0x10(%rdx),%rax <-- trapping instruction

which corresponds to

if (info->fbops->fb_release)

so it looks like 'info->fbops' is invalid. It's in %rdx, and is
0x00d000ae00b500c2, which is definitely not a valid pointer. Looks
like some bad corruption (looks like a sequence of 16-bit numbers, but
it could be anything).

Looks like nouveafb took over from vesafb. Did you do anything special
to trigger this?

Also, you do seem to have some extra patches (yama at the least). Anything else?
