But just now I've noticed in the dmesg:

WARNING: 2 errors while detecting hardware; check system log.

so might be that something is dying in the hardware...

Also, the panic in the dmesg (from today) is unrelated,
as it was after applying the patch from this PR --
the load was increasing for a few hours until like 250,
and then that panic happened.

Hardware problem is possible, but it would be a funny
coincidence, since it started at the time of the upgrade
from NetBSD 6 to NetBSD 8.

I'll bring it down tomorrow and run memtest86+
