:I'm experiencing the very same effect after I upgraded to latest HEAD
:yesterday, the machine panics right before fsck'ing/mounting. I also
:cannot produce dump files...

    Ok, on both reports it looks like some recent sysctl work must have
    broken sysctl.  The kernel does a sysctl -a while booting in order
    to help seed the random number generator.

    Rumko, could you do a 'nm -n /kernel' (or wherever that kernel binary
    resides) and track down the function containing the address 0xc045d724 ?

    I'm guessing is related to the recent network/polling work.
