How on earth can trunc_page(any_garbage) equal 0x10?
Am I missing something?

In what sense? The kdb_trap() call is from arch/amd64/amd64/trap.c:237.
I don't have a backtrace. I don't even have the stack frame of the
trap handler because of the locking-against-myself-panic during sync.
Maybe I'll be able to extract the frame from the tar process's kernel
Or do you mean this:
(gdb) info line *(dqget+0x118)
