So, it's from feeding a static address of a module which is allocated
on the vmalloc space to bit_waitqueue() which then tries to find out
the backing page struct which vmalloc area obviously doesn't have.
Currently testing an alternative patch which uses a single waitqueue
w/ a custom wakeup function which can filter the target work item.
Will soon post the new version.

Thanks.
