It means that your mb_map or kmem_map is too small.

What NetBSD version are you running?  In my 1.2 sources, that panic is 
not there; Chris Demetriou altered the sematics of kmem_malloc() 
somewhat.. Running out of space in mb_map is recoverable (the mbuf 
management code attempts to reclaim map space by draining the mbuf-using 
protocols), and the kmem_map case is more informative :-)
