So this dies simply because kasan_populate_shadow() runs out of memory and
has no sanity check whatsoever.

static __init void *early_alloc(size_t size, int nid)
{
return memblock_virt_alloc_try_nid_nopanic(size, size,
__pa(MAX_DMA_ADDRESS), BOOTMEM_ALLOC_ACCESSIBLE, nid);
}

kasan_populate_pmd()
{
.....

p = early_alloc(PAGE_SIZE, nid);
entry = pfn_pte(PFN_DOWN(__pa(p)), PAGE_KERNEL);

I've instrumented the whole thing and early_alloc() returns NULL at some
point and then __pa(NULL) dies in the VIRTUAL_DEBUG code. Well, it would
die with VIRTUAL_DEBUG=n as well at some other place.

Not really a problem caused by the patch above, it's merily exposing a code
path which relies blindly on "enough memory available" assumptions.

Throwing more memory at the VM makes the problem go away...

Thanks,

tglx
