Looks like a NULL pointer dereference. using objdump you can find
the instruction sequence in the file. Then you can compile the source
file with -gstabs -S and get an assembly file that has the line
numbers with the code. At this point you should be able to see the
line number that caused the fault. Also set ddb.onpanic=2 and run
a ps to see what process ran the sysctl. Of course if the crash
worked, you can figure the same by running gdb on the core file.
