 Hmmm, it seems that adding a printf() in the module initialization code 
 "fixes" the problem.  Some sort of timing issue, maybe?
 In any case, modunload(8) of the nfsserver module repeatable causes a 
 kernel panic as previously described. It doesn't panic immediately, and 
 in fact I've had enough time to actually confirm (with modstat(8)) that 
 the module has been unloaded.  But then it panics.  I suspect that there 
 is maybe some timer code that has not been stopped, and it still fires 
 even after the module is unloaded?
 Oh, I previously noted that the module init/fini code wasn't checking 
 the error status from syscall_{,dis}establish() calls.  That was not 
 correct - the status is being checked correctly.
