mac80211, or mac80211-hwsim? I can load a few modules, but then it
crashes on say the third (usually, but who knows what this depends on).

Not sure I tried that combination though.

I think I got some trouble also with just stack unwinding and other
random things faulting in the vmalloc and/or shadow space ...

Me neither. I just noticed that all the vmalloc and kasan-vmalloc do all
the PTE handling, so things might easily clash if you have
CONFIG_KASAN_VMALLOC, which we do want eventually.

Pretty sure we should be able to hook it up later, but I haven't really
dug deeply yet.
