c136b84393d4e340e1b53fc7f737dd5827b19ee5 works

4.13-rc1 works
Which actually isn't so surprising, as I pull from linus/master every Sunday
night/Monday morning, so I'd would have noticed KVM breakage sooner.

4.13-rc4 works

4.13-rc5 works (but ↓)

v4.13-rc5-173-g58d4e450a490 works... uh oh.
It shouldn't -- it's merge-base between mainline and what I was running on
the initial crash, and I'm sure anything non-mainline I had isn't the
culprit. After a couple of hours of running various loads inside and
outside KVM, I finally got it to crash.

4.13-rc5 retested fails
Crashed only after two hours or so of testing.

4.13-rc4 apparently works
It survived several hours of varied tests (like 5 debian-installer runs, a
win10 point release upgrade, some hurd package building, openbsd, etc),
all while the host was likewise busy.

Thus: to the best of my knowledge, the problem is between 4.13-rc4 and 4.13-rc5
but I wouldn't bet my life on it.
