Looks like a duplicate of the "mm: kernel BUG at mm/memory.c:1230" thread

Andrea suggested adding a printk of addr, end, vma->vm_start, and
vma->vm_end to debug it.

Since it's been reported a few different times, perhaps this should be

mm, thp: print useful information when mmap_sem is unlocked in zap_pmd_range

Andrea asked for addr, end, vma->vm_start, and vma->vm_end to be emitted
when !rwsem_is_locked(&tlb->mm->mmap_sem). Otherwise, debugging the
underlying issue is more difficult.
