Gack, someone _really_ needs to fix the backtrace stuff so that it
works on the i386.  (I know it works on the sparc, since I just did

Jukka, can you e-mail the output of:

	dmesg -N netbsd.0 -M netbsd.0.core

It should contain the printfs that were displayes just before the call
to panic().  They should help give a better clue about what's going

Strangely, I haven't seen such panics, but then again, I'm running
-current.  Let's see what we can find out about this problem, to get
it fixed.
