Can anyone reliably dump core on a -current amd64? I can't; out of the 11 tries it only succeeded once, and then savecore proceeded to ignore the dump for whatever reason. A 12th test using the panic key produced a null pointer dereference in __wdstart while dumping (after about 5Mibyte of the 2Gibyte total).
I had a core dump yesterday while playing with some local kernel mods. It worked just fine.

Here it (10 out of 11 times) hangs right after 'syncing disks...'. I really don't get what it's hanging on. The kernel is GENERIC except for options EST_DEBUG and EST_FREQ_USERWRITE.
