That smells like a data corruption problem ...

and so does that, particularly since the value equates to hex 01FFFFFF.
It's a lot easier to believe a hardware-ish fault stuffing such a value

If I'm reading the Red Hat CVS correctly, that kernel is two years old

troll through the changelog reveals a number of x86_64-specific fixes
that sound like they could have resulted in userspace data corruption.
