This kind of agrees with my result ie. list_del() in isolate_lru_pages():

0xffffffff80265b7a is in isolate_lru_pages (list.h:160).
155 * Note: list_empty on entry does not return true after this, the entry is
156 * in an undefined state.
157 */
158 static inline void list_del(struct list_head *entry)
159 {
160 BUG_ON(entry->prev->next != entry);
161 BUG_ON(entry->next->prev != entry);
162 __list_del(entry->prev, entry->next);
163 entry->next = LIST_POISON1;
164 entry->prev = LIST_POISON2;

It looks like we have passed an empty list or a NULL to list_del(). Strange.
