linux-next includes very much the same code as drm-tip. There's nobody
magically reviewing the code more than it is reviewed for inclusion into
drm-tip, when it is fed into linux-next. So thinking linux-next would be
some way safer is an illusion.

It sounds like having memory pressure expedites the corruption, which
should make it easier to reproduce and thus fix.

So if you could please try drm-tip reproducing AND open a bug in Bugzilla.
If you are unwilling to do that, it is very difficult to help you more.
