After a bunch of tests with various attempts in ~six months,
adding "options SOSEND_NO_LOAN" seems to fix this problem.

Maybe some zero-copy TCP/UDP code doesn't wire pages properly
on disk->network xfer then some page of mbuf to be sent by
the Ethernet driver is invalidated from PTE on some memory
shortage situation?

Is it okay to add the option to cobalt/conf/std.cobalt
and the similar files of other mips ports for workaround?
(the panic also happens on sgimips IP32 + tlp)
