IMO, it should be backported to stable tree, seems that I missed CC to stable
tree ;-)
the stom of WARN_ONs is very easy for me to reproduce.
More than that, I watched a panic (not reproducible) as follows:

[35381.213809] Disabling lock debugging due to kernel taint

I ever injected a fault on purpose in kvm_unmap_hva_range by set
size=size-0x200, the call trace is similar
as above. Thus, I thought the panic is similarly caused by the root cause of WARN_ON
