Sadly no time to hunt the free at the moment, so working around temporarily by

diff --git a/kernel/timer.c b/kernel/timer.c
index 4296d13..fc7ef44 100644
--- a/kernel/timer.c
+++ b/kernel/timer.c
@@ -1094,6 +1094,9 @@ static void call_timer_fn(struct timer_list
*timer, void (*fn)(unsigned long),
{
int preempt_count = preempt_count();

+ if (fn == NULL)
+ return;
+

Hoping someone wiser catches the real fix at some point.
