Can anyone help me?

- options DIAGNOSTIC might help debug

I'm busy trying to reproduce with options DIAGNOSTIC right now. So far it hasn't panicked in the last 3 hours.

- does it happen on UP kernel (GENERIC, not GENERIC.MP), or netbsd-5?

I've managed to reproduce this now in netbsd-5 too (source is about 3 months old, not sure if there have been any changes since):

re0: discarding oversize frame (len=9041)
re0: discarding oversize frame (len=16158)
panic: kernel diagnostic assertion "pcg->pcg_avail == 0" failed: file "../../../../kern_subr_pool.c", line 2580

As I think I've said before, the actual crash point is different
every time but the panic is always preceded by the discarding
oversize frame. Sometimes the len in the oversize frame message
is len=-1.

Any advice?
