I'm still trying to spot the bug, but bisect points to this patch as
the point at which my unit tests start failing with the following
signature:

This is similar to the backtrace when we were not properly handling
pud faults and was fixed with this commit: 220ced1676c4 "mm: fix
get_user_pages() vs device-dax pud mappings"

I've found some missing _devmap checks in the generic
get_user_pages_fast() path, but this does not fix the regression:
