 I managed to get a core dump.  I booted single-user, set ddb.onpanic=0,
 zeroed most of main memory via a program that malloced a lot of
 memory with _malloc_options=Z to make the core dump smaller, and did two
 sysctl machdep.sleep_state=3.  On the second resume, it panicked.  The
 resulting dump and kernel file (with symbols) are at
 The traceback in the dump (and for that matter the panic string printed
 at crash time) are different than in the original PR, but I suspect
 that that's more a helpful clue than a hindrance -- the crash is 100%
 reproducible, which suggests that the different backtraces are symptoms
 of the same underlying issue.
 This dump, btw, is from 4.99.53, from sources retrieved today.
