It doesn't appear that MIPS has kcore support, unlike most other

I usually use ddb (with help from gdb and a netbsd.gdb to work out
source code line numbers) and good ol' fashioned printf debugging.  I
keep meaning to look at kgdb but never seem to get around to it...

Back to the original problem - when you get the panic what do you see
on the console, and does "bt" from the ddb prompt show a useful stack
