Fatal trap 9: general protection fault while in kernel mode

Been tracking -CURENT (& -STABLE, though that is of marginal relevance
to this) on a daily basis for a couple of years now.  Gone fairly well,
usually; sometimes there's turbulence.  I suspect this is just a bump,
though -- and it's the first one I've encountered in at least a couple
of weeeks.

Sources updated as of 0347 hrs. US/Pacific; mirror I normally use is
cvsup14 (though I noticed that my script fell back to others in the
last few days, and I recall that cvsup13 was used yesterday).  I'd
need to reboot the system to be more definite than that.

Got -CURRENT (re-)built; booted, logged in, poked around, seemed OK;

	sudo boot0cfg -s 1 ad0 && sudo halt -p

(to switch to default to booting from -STABLE next time I bring the
machine up, then power the machine off).

Was greeted on the xterm that has the serial console by:

Starting background file system checks in 60 seconds.

I have nothing urgent such that I need to get the machine up & running
soon, so I can leave it this way for a while.  (Note that I had planned
to power it off until tonight.)

As you can see, the box is SMP (2x886 MHz PIIIs); 512 MB RAM iirc.  Very
little customization for the kernel beyond tweaking GENERIC for SMP.

I'll try to check back here from time to time (have a project in the
back yard that will require attention & labor).

I'm presently building -CURRENT from equivalent sources on my (UP)

Anyway, if anyone thinks of something useful I can do to help figure
this out and/or test patches, please let me know.  (I do keep a private
mirror of the CVS repo here, and testing patches is pretty
straightforward for me.)

Based on what I have seen to date, the use of Microsoft products is not
consistent with reliability.  I recommend FreeBSD for reliable systems.
