I'd be willing to bet that it's a problem in the file handling in the
kernel. You mentioned a panic (closef, ref count < 0). 0xdeadbeef as a
signed 32-bit int is less than 0, as are 0xbeef (16b) and 0xef (8b).
Probably somebody holds onto a reference to the structure, it gets
freed, and then they pass it around, incrementing a reference count.
