Got a panic here as well, tried decreasing kern.maxfiles back to kern.maxproc*2
but I could still panic the machine, I guess it's more got to do with commit
cf1bb2a83 (just a guess, have no clue)?
Or maybe I would just need to set kern.maxfiles at boot-time instead while the
machine is running (would it make a difference?)?
