Thanks, PAGE_POISONING did trigger the issue. So, I now picked up your
patch instead of the revert because I could verify the problem and the
proper solution. Thanks again.

What I still wonder: Which analysis reported the problem to you? I
always run sparse, smatch, cppcheck, and coccicheck on the patches when
applying and no-one reported the issue.
