I never completed that test.  Martin Husemann suggested the problem
might be with "direct map" code, and on his suggestion I disabled that
by ifdef'ing out the relevant defines near the end of
sys/arch/amd64/include/types.h.  I used to have one or two hangs or
crashes per day, and it's now been a week with not a single incident.

So, I guess the problem biting me was irrelevant to port-386.
