I had a bit of trouble reproducing this but I got it just now.

Makes sense I've never run into this even though others can readily
reproduce it. I happen to run my kernels on a pretty beefy 36 core
machine and in that setup things seem to execute fast and there is
never a queue of pending file_region inserts into the resv_map. Once I
limited qemu to only use 2 cores I ran into the issue right away.
Looking into a fix now.
