Trying to debug a qemu hang (PR 54789) I attached gdb to the (only) qemu 
process running via gdb -p $pid.

This made the kernel crash imediately - but unfortunately the panic is not
100% reproducable.

Unfortunately no crash dump, ddb locked up after I tried to continue.

panic message (from memory): one of the two  KASSERT(l->l_stat != LSZOMB);
in kern_lwp.c failed (lwp_addref or lwp_delref), backtrace through various
ptrace_* functions.


Download a recentish sparc64 iso and then:

 qemu-system-sparc64 -prom-env 'auto-boot?=false' -m 128 \
        -drive file=wd1.img,if=ide,index=0,media=disk,snapshot=off,format=raw \
        -drive file=wd0.img,if=ide,index=1,media=disk,snapshot=off,format=raw \
        -cdrom $ISO -nographic
 boot cdrom:f

In another window, do:

  gdb -p $( pgrep qemu )

and be unlucky.
