Seems there is not yet enough information to figure out where bug is hiding.
Also, it the only problem report with such symptoms, but if it is happening
consistently and crashing the same way - unlikely to be a hardware problem.

Looking at the data from your email, there is callback_run_roundrobin() which
calls a function pointer, but it is very unlikely to be NULL.  I have added an
assert, "just in case":

Would you be able to try -current kernel, with that change in the link, and
with the following debug options:

options DEBUG
makeoptions DEBUG="-g -fno-omit-frame-pointer"

Then repeat x/Lx and x/I dance again.  But no LOCKDEBUG option, as it might
avoid some overhead and hopefully get stack dump a little bit more readable.
Additionally, 'show uvm' output from DDB might be useful.
