Strange, kallsyms should have registered the address already, even if it
crashed on early module load. Not sure why it's not reporting it. Well,
it seems to have reported some of the symbols of ip_gre below. Maybe
this pointer is just totally screwed up.

The ip_gre(+) shows that this is indeed happening while the ip_gre
module is being loaded.

This looks like something really bad happened net_namespace.c with
ops->init(net). If ops is corrupted here, it would explain why calling
ops->init might do something nasty and we get a bad instruction pointer.

Note the faulting address is 0xffffffffa0e52001, which is around the
above address, be interesting to know what was at that location.

Well, probably a lock was held when this crashed, and never got to be
released. Which would explain the modprobe hangs. There's a few net
mutexes held in that location too.
