It looks like it is the access to "lock->key" that takes a page fault.
The pointer looks good (%r13=ffff8801654cec98), so I'm pretty sure
this is due to DEBUG_PAGEALLOC and a free'd page.

So it looks like ep_unregister_pollwait() calls remove_wait_queue() on
a wait-queue head that has already been free'd.

I have this dim memory of us having fought this before. But maybe I'm
just remembering some of the old signalfd-vs-epoll races.

Oleg, does this trigger any memory for you? Commit 971316f0503a
("epoll: ep_unregister_pollwait() can use the freed pwq->whead") just
makes me go "Hmm, this is *exactly* that that commit is talking
about.."
