Hmm. I don't see a crash while running that command, but I do see an RCU
stall in find_get_entries() called from shmem_undo_range() when running
'cp' the second time -- ie while truncating the /dev/shm/zero file.
Maybe I'm seeing the same bug as you, and maybe I'm seeing a different
one. Do we have a shmem test suite somewhere?

I've dumped the XArray tree on my machine and it actually looks fine
*except* that the pages pointed to are free! That indicates to me I
screwed up somebody's reference count somewhere.
