This seems to happen reproducibly, even on 5.99.9: the system panics as
described some minutes after starting a release build.

However, since I disabled Hyper-Threading (the system has a Pentium 4
CPU) in the BIOS, I didn't manage to reproduce the problem so far.  Are
there known problems with HTT and NetBSD?  Having it disabled is not a
problem for me, but I'm not sure whether it might be worth sending a PR
or not.
