   While this is rather interesting, I'm trying to get a 1.0 kernel to work, 
   not a -current.  I finally have some info on the panic (I usually get two 
   of them so the first scrolls off the screen):

   trap type=2 code=0 v=0
   pid=24 pc=000051ea ps=2000
   sfc = 0001 dfc=0001

   followed, of course, by the manditory register dump and stack dump.

   I was hoping that someone would tell me that this is a well known problem 
   with a simple fix.

   I'm going to try to compile the INSTALL kernel and see how that fares.


Turn off all forms of debugging in the config.  Rebuild from the 1.0

Don't ask me why, but it worked for me.
