:Does this also explain why this problem occurs in SMP only?

    It would, yes, because M_NOWAIT will cause allocation failures far
    more often on SMP systems if the allocation subsystem cannot get
    the big giant lock when accessing the VM system (which occurs when the
    per-cpu cache is empty).

    The question is, does the commit just made to HEAD (not PREVIEW) fix 
    the panics?
