As additional information:

+ * Set the map size to the number of mapped software queues.
+ * This is more accurate and more efficient than looping
+ * over all possibly mapped software queues.
+ */
+ map->map_size = hctx->nr_ctx / map->bits_per_word;

On my system, hctx->nr_ctx is 1, and map->bits_per_word is 8.
Thus map->map_size is set to 0, which doesn't make much sense.
The system comes up if I replace the above code with
map->map_size = DIV_ROUND_UP(hctx->nr_ctx, map->bits_per_word);

I have no idea if that is the correct fix, though.
