Unrelated. This can take the lock and free it. It only shows up
because we do memory ops inside the mmu_lock, which is deeply forbidden
(anything which touches user memory, including kmalloc(), can trigger
mmu notifiers and recursive locking).

Just a silly bug. kvm_pdptr_read() can cause a guest memory read on
svm, in this case with the mmu lock taken. I'll post something to fix it.

Ever increasing complexity...
