First, could you please verify if you have following fix in your kernel.
This fixed a similar oops when runnign strace test suite.
And was only seen on ultrasparc-III

    sparc64: Fix exception handling in UltraSPARC-III memcpy.

    Mikael Pettersson reported that some test programs in the strace-4.18
    testsuite cause an OOPS.

    After some debugging it turns out that garbage values are returned
    when an exception occurs, causing the fixup memset() to be run with
    bogus arguments.

    The problem is that two of the exception handler stubs write the
    successfully copied length into the wrong register.

    Fixes: ee841d0aff64 ("sparc64: Convert U3copy_{from,to}_user to accurate exception reporting.")
