Now I've learnt that an oops on 0xffffffffffffffbe points to EEXIST,
not to EREMOTE, it's easy: patch below fixes those four xfstests
(and no doubt a similar oops I've seen occasionally under swapping
load): so gives clean xfstests runs for non-huge and huge tmpfs.

I can reproduce a kernel BUG at mm/khugepaged.c:1358! - that's the
VM_BUG_ON(index != xas.xa_index) in collapse_shmem() - but it will
take too long to describe how to reproduce that one, so I'm running
it past you just in case you have a quick idea on it, otherwise I'll
try harder. I did just try an xas_set(&xas, index) before the loop,
in case the xas_create_range(&xas) had interfered with initial state;
but if that made any difference at all, it only delayed the crash.
