Several more reboots have yielded more data.

First -- and this one is still tentative -- the crash is triggered by
named running.  I need to test a few more times on that, however.

Second, turning off ddb.onpanic and using the sysctl you suggested did
indeed give a useful backtrace.  The original panic is

DDB lost fram for Xsoftintr

I've omitted the addresses because I think the chain is pretty clear.

However, there's a recursive panic:
uvm_fault(0xc0b27d00, 0, 1) -> 0xe
supervisor trap page fault, code=0
Faulted in DDB

I can't get out of that; it repeats indefinitely...
