The BUG-ON arises in __intel_map_single() due to dir (for direction of DMA)
equal to DMA_NONE (3). When rtl8192ee calls pci_map_single(), it uses
PCI_DMA_TODEVICE (1). I followed the calling sequence through the entire chain,
and none of the routines made any changes to 'dir', other that changing the type
from int to enum dma_data_direction. That would not have changed a 1 to a 3.

I built a 4.13.2 system. The problem does not happen here. At this point, the
system has been up for about two hours. I did discover a small memory leak
associated with firmware loading, but that should not have caused the problem.
Nonetheless, I will be sending a patch to fix that problem.

I will continue testing, although I doubt that the problem will happen here.

How long had your system been up when the problem occurred? Your dmesg fragment
did not show any times. What kernels have you tried besides 4.13.2?
