I've got a dump.
The DragonFly version has been updated. It is now v2.5.1.676.gf2b2e-DEVELOPMENT.

You can get the files from here:

For what it's worth, savecore(8) was trying to read /kernel and exited before
saving the dump:

  $ savecore -k -v
  savecore: reboot after panic: cleaned vnode isn't
  savecore: /kernel: No such file or directory
  savecore: writing kernel to kern.0
  savecore: /kernel: Bad file descriptor
  savecore: WARNING: kernel may be incomplete

I had to create a symbolic link from /boot/kernel to /kernel to make it happy.
