This looks like a NULL which has had a one-bit error in it. If so, you have
some flaky memory.
It could crash your system if it happens in the right place. The error above
happened in a page table, which pretty serious. If it had switched a bit in a
non-zero pmd, you could have had some pretty serious data corruption.
