Ok, I'm looking at that oops and am trying to follow what happens but in
order for all to fit the 0000000001912178 value above should actually be
0000000001912a78, if I'm not mistaken.

Can you please check if that's the case or send me that screenshot you
mention above. Better yet, can you catch that oops over a serial console
or a netconsole or similar?
