Description of problem:
I see the message "BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at xxxx" and get a kernel panic.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Linux kernels 4.11.3-200.fc25.x86_64 and 126.96.36.199.fc25.x86_64.
100% of the time.
Steps to Reproduce:
Boot into either of the above kernels.
The kernel panics with the following stack trace:
Kernel should boot.
1. If I press "e" at the GRUB menu, remove "quiet" from the boot parameters, and press Ctrl+X to continue, the kernel boots successfully.
2. I tried to get a kernel core dump using kdump, but nothing appears in /var/crash. If I manually trigger a panic with "echo c > /proc/sysrq-trigger", then I do see a core file.
3. There is an additional discussion here: https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/question/106433/fail-to-boot-after-the-last-two-kernel-updates/

I've discovered that blacklisting nouveau allows my computer to finish booting.
Can you capture more of the stacktrace right after the "nvkm_timer_alarm_trigger" line? That will help give more information
The issue is known, and a patch has been sent upstream. I believe Greg has queued it for the various stable trees already, but I don't see it in a tagged release yet.

Just as an FYI, this bug still appears in kernel-4.11.4-200.fc25.x86_64
I believe 4.11.5 should have the fix so please test https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2017-c283e18644
