Any more progress with this? I would say that bisect might have just
been a bit unstable and maybe by chance some things did not crash so
it's pointing to the wrong patch.

Upstream merge of powerpc-5.13-1 was good and powerpc-5.13-2 was bad?

Between that looks like some KVM MMU rework. You could try the patch
before this one b1c5356e873c ("KVM: PPC: Convert to the gfn-based MMU 
notifier callbacks"). That won't revert cleanly so just try run the
tree at that point. If it works, test the patch and see if it fails.
