I installed NetBSD-current on my dual amd64 machine. It's kernel is GENERIC.MP

When I tried to check out the netbsd source tree, the

	KASSERT((*vpp)->v_type == VNON);

at line 687 of src/sys/ufs/ffs/ffs_alloc.c fired. Unfortunately DDB page
faulted on most commands, so I couldn't get any further info.

No idea, but before I installed the DDB enabled kernel, I had quite a few
crashes - all on cvs operations (since I've not come around do to anything
else on this machine)
