The patch at the URL below checks the "debugger_on_panic" sysctl to
conditionalize use of the debugger.
Is this a problem you are currently seeing ? If so can you get a dump of
the system so we can look at that situation and diagnose the problem.
If you don't want to deal with any debugging you should remove 'options
DDB' from your kernel config file. This is a problem that pops up from
time to time on sudo random hardware. Normally there are several reports
that will fly by the list before anyone will break to a debugger to give
us a traceback.
