I can't make any sense of this. It doesn't look anything like what I
get when I disassemble assoc_array_insert(). There are no SARL or ADC

Can you load your vmlinux into gdb and disassemble the function that holds the
faulting instruction:

gdb vmlinux
(gdb) disassemble <RIP-value>

Unfortunately, I'm not sure what the RIP value actually is because it's been
replaced in the dump by source file + line number. It's not this:

[ 31.330473] CR2: ffffffff8b49ff42

though. That's RAX (ie. 0) plus the offset in the following instruction:

sarl $0x5f,-0x74b600be(%rax) <-- trapping instruction
