Investigating 5.3-RC1 panic

Before reporting this to the list, I would first gather enough information.

Alu’s server boxes is suffering in continued reboot when server is loaded. Because he is supporting FreeBSD by utilizing 5.3-RC1 in his production environment (and it’s moderately loaded as it is connected to the ChinaNet Backbone), and donated many devices for dedicated services of the FreeBSD China Community, I think we must help him to solve these out.

I have plugged a new kernel configuration on his box in order to obtain a (potential) crashdump and figure out what is happening. Maybe we will get it tomorrow.

I found this site looking for information about panicking 5.3-RC1 boxes.
I’m having trouble with 5.3-RC1 rebooting reproducable after exactly 60-61 minutes. Does that correspond to Alu’s experience?
