Last night I was bored and decided to see if I could trigger this
panic again and get a crash dump this time. I'm happy to report
The crash dump is quite large - this is a machine with 2G of physical
RAM, but it's available, with debugging kernel, if anyone wants to
look at it:
Please only download it if you're going to look at it! :)
I'm poking around it with gdb right now, but since I've never touched
the softdep code, and am not even really that familiar with FFS, I'm
most likely not going to find the root cause, so help is
