Phew, this took a long while but I've bisected it (with good confidence) down
to:

commit a38246260912ba4a0f8b563704a965a7a97cf3c3
Author: Davidlohr Bueso <dave@stgolabs.net>
Date: Wed Dec 3 18:54:27 2014 +1100

mm/memory.c: share the i_mmap_rwsem

The unmap_mapping_range family of functions do the unmapping of user pages
(ultimately via zap_page_range_single) without touching the actual
interval tree, thus share the lock.
