I've been hitting what I think is a struct file refcounting bug which
causes similar symptoms as you have here (the struct file is freed
while somebody still has an active reference to it).

Was this or any other process by any chance killed by the OOM killer?
That seems to be a pattern in the crashes I've seen. If not, do you
know what killed this process?
