I just had the following panic in -current for the second time,
while doing a 'shutdown -p now' on 3.99.5/i386. The first
time was in 3.99.3, I think. The panic was:

uvm_fault (0xcc080624, 0, 0, 1) -> 0xe
kernel page fault trap, code=0
stopped in pid 361.1 (bash) at netbsd:spec_ioctl

The kernel debugger didn't react to my USB keyboard, so I'm not
sure how to get more information.

The machine was idle at the time, though the last thing before
the shutdown was copying a large file (~10GB) over the network
to a local softdeps-mounted ffsv2 disc, and three sync(8)s.

Any ideas?
