Great, thanks!

Both logs have this line in it, followed by opening and writing to
this file:

compat_50_mknod(&(0x7f0000000000)='./file0\x00', 0x2001, 0x400)

As Chuck explained, this creates a device node mapping the swap space;
if any swap files or devices are configured, writing to this device
node would likely corrupt userland process memory and/or crash
processes.  So I think both of these crash logs are red herrings.
