It'd be worth ensuring that the requires guest_loglvl and loglvl
parameters to allow this is in place on the hypervisor command line.

Are these reports against totally unpatched kernel.org domU kernels?

This is "BUG_ON(*map == 0);" which is subtly different from the error in
the original post from Peter which was a "unable to handle kernel paging
request" at EIP c01ab854, with a pagetable walk showing PTE==0.

I'd bet the dereference corresponds to the "*map" in that same place but
Peter can you convert that address to a line of code please?

map came from a kmap_atomic() not far before this point so it appears
that it is mapping the wrong page (so *map != 0) and/or mapping a
non-existent page (leading to the fault).

Warning, wild speculation follows...

Is it possible that we are in lazy paravirt mode at this point such that
the mapping hasn't really occurred yet, leaving either nothing or the
previous mapping? (would the current paravirt lazy state make a useful
general addition to the panic message?)

The definition of kmap_atomic is a bit confusing:
/*
* Make both: kmap_atomic(page, idx) and kmap_atomic(page) work.
*/
#define kmap_atomic(page, args...) __kmap_atomic(page)
but it appears that the KM_USER0 at the callsite is ignored and instead
we end up using the __kmap_atomic_idx stuff (fine). I wondered if it is
possible we are overflowing the number of slots but there is an explicit
BUG_ON for that case in kmap_atomic_idx_push. Oh, wait, that's iff
CONFIG_DEBUG_HIGHMEM, which appears to not be enabled. I think it would
be worth trying, it doesn't look to have too much overhead.

Another possibility which springs to mind is the pfn->mfn laundering
going wrong. Perhaps as a skanky debug hack remembering the last pte
val, address, mfn, pfn etc and dumping them on error would give a hint?
I wouldn't expect that to result in a non-present mapping though, rather
I would expect either the wrong thing or the guest to be killed by the
hypervisor

Would it be worth doing a __get_user(map) (or some other "safe" pointer
dereference) right after the mapping is established, catching a fault if
one occurs so we can dump some additional debug in that case? I'm not
entirely sure what to suggest dumping though.
