I cannot confirm that Linus' tree currently has problems on s390 with
commit e553f62f10d9 ("mm, page_alloc: fix build_zonerefs_node()").

This commit was applied by Linus on 15th of April, and our CI didn't
report any problems since then. At least nothing that would point to
this commit. Also I just gave e553f62f10d9 a try (defconfig + KASAN):
no problems to report.

Same with 059342d1dd4e (mm-stable): it just works for me.

Liam, could you share your kernel config?
