Hm, a LOCKDEBUG kernel panics with (amd64 on Q6600):

Mutex error: lockdebug_wantlock 'locking against myself'
lock address : 0xffff800053f46d80 type: spin

and thats it, no reaction anymore.

Looks very similar on i386, but drops to dbb. bt shows sched_nextlwp()
somewhere... Couldn't get a dump as "reboot" hangs in syncing disks...
