There's a similar looking bug being debugged here:

Could you please send the before/after bootlog (in particular all memory init
messages included) and your .config?

before: f005fe12b90c: x86-64: Move out cleanup higmap [_brk_end, _end) out of init_memory_mapping()
after: d2137d5af425: Merge branch 'linus' into x86/bootmem

I've Cc:-ed more people who might have an idea about it.
