This is just an information, but there will be no PR, as I lack the time
and opportunity to retry this:
I have -current from Friday running on my i386-platform (P-II-266). The system
resides on a SCSI disk, I tried to copy to an IDE drive (jumpered as slave).
The amount of data was something around 500 MB to 1 GB. Both the source and
the target filesystem were FFS with softdep enabled. I had rebooted to make
that known to the system. Suddenly the debugger came up. A trace showed:
panic: flush_pagedep_deps: flush 2 failed
I hope this piece might help someone find a problem. I am sorry that I can't
reproduce this, as one of the disks is gone from my system now.
