It looks like there are at least two bugs here, one that's a full
hardlockup with nothing on serial console. The other is the NULL
dereference.

Just ran with your patch applied and it hit the hard lockup case.

I'll have to see if things are reproducible and I can try to see if I can
get a reproducible value for what even caused the issue. perf_fuzzer has
some infrastructure for determining that but it's hit or miss if you can
get anything useful from it.

I'll keep running things, but I'm a bit busy at work here the next few
days so there might be some delay in the results.
