The panic is in the zero-copy sockets code.  There have been many VM
system changes which may have fixed it.  Specifically, Alan Cox
improved the sf_buf system quite a bit between 5.1 and 5.2.

Can you map socow_setup+0xc9 to a source file line number in your
system please?  Do

gdb kernel.debug
(gdb) list *socow_setup+0xc9

BTW, A certain way to prevent this from ever happening is to disable
that code by removing options ZERO_COPY_SOCKETS from your kernel
config file.
