busdma isn't the culprit here.  It was trying to allocate memory and
the uma code found a block that was free and checked it before handing
it out, and discovered that it had been modified after being freed.

Before being freed, the memory was last used as the softc for some
device (perhaps only during probing of a device that never attached). 
That device would most likely be the culprit (or a wild-pointer write
hit that block).
