Maybe it's the same problem I see on my dual CPU box?
See kern/19973. I've experienced several such freezes even
during runtime (i.e. not on reboot) since then. All in all
it seems as if sa code, when delivering upcall, would pick
up lwp running on another processor (and thus is ONPROC there) and
paniccing in kern_sa.c:sa_vp_reposses().
