Please could you share your "changes" (that injected the fault) that triggered this Panic
and the steps that triggered this ?

The only reason we should get there is by trying to put a page that is not owned by the KVM
Stage 2 page table either:

1) It was free'd already ? - We has some race conditions there which were
fixed.
2) The code tries to access something that doesn't belong there. - If this happens
that doesn't look good for a simple change you mentioned. So we would like to
know better about the situation to see if there is something we need to address.
