What's the previous panic look like?  (I wonder if we have an SMP bug in 

Trap type 0x34 is an alignment trap.  The instruction in question is 
trying to load an 8-byte integer pointed to by %g4+0x20 into %g4.  You can 
enable DDB and dump the registers to find the contents of %g4.  That 
should not be 8-byte aligned.

Beyond that it's a question of debugging the ipfilter code.

That ipfstat is getting unaligned accesses implies some data structure is 
unaligned.  You can slap gdb on it to find out what, or you can break into 
DDB and set the TDB_STOPSIG bit in trapdebug to have the kernel break into 
DDB on each unaligned access and debug it from there.
