Generally it's best to enable CONFIG_ALLSYMS and not bother running
ksymoops: the kernel does the decode for you.

The problem with ksymoops seems to be that it causes people to not send
important preceding messages. In this case:

printk(KERN_ERR "kfree_debugcheck: out of range ptr %lxh.\n",
(unsigned long)objp);

Anyway, you died in kobject_cleanup()'s call to kfree(kobj->k_name), which
was newly added as a part of kobject-unlimited-name-lengths.patch.

Is it repeatable? Exactly which modules were you attempting to load at the
time? And please send your .config.
