Looking at the PR, it looks like mbuf chain corruption somewhere.
What is the activity common to all these systems? You have NFS
enabled for server and client in the kernel, but are they actually
used actively as such? If you avoid any NFS activity, will it still
panic at reboot?

(I'm trying to work out if this is an NFS problem or not)
