OK, investigating this more.

perf_fuzzer-2971 [000] 154.944114: page_fault_user: address=0xf7729000 ip=0x41efab error_code=0x6

It looks like there are two page faults. The first is caused by the user
code accessing the mmap'd page. It looks sort of normal and what you'd
expect if the perf_event mmap ring buffer is being accessed for the first

What follows is a kernel page fault, and this is the one where for
whatever reason CR2 has obtained the value of the userspace RBP register.
