That's not really surprising ... you're still freeing PMD tables without
calling the destructor, which means that you're leaking ptlocks on
configs that can't embed the ptlock in the struct page.

I suppose it shows that you're leaking a PMD table rather than a PTE
table, so that might help track it down. Checking for PG_table in
free_unref_page() and calling show_stack() will probably help more.
