The problem is that we call vmbus_disconnect() too late in
vmbus_exit(). We need to call it:
1) Before hv_cleanup() call as we free hypercall page there (that's what
you see in my crash)
2) Before hv_remove_vmbus_irq() as we're waiting for the hypervisor to
reply.

This simple patch fixes the issue:
diff --git a/drivers/hv/vmbus_drv.c b/drivers/hv/vmbus_drv.c
index 7870a90..2b56260 100644

}

I suggest we incorporate it into your PATCH 5/5.
