By any chance would it be possible for you to revert to the failing
configuration and dump the contents of the TLB at the oops?  Your
description makes it sound like the multiple ioremaps are generating
duplicate or otherwise conflicting TLB entries.  If that's so, there's a
bug in the TLB management code to be hunted down and killed while we
have a test case...
