The original reporter seems to have given up on this. I have seen
something very similar, and thought I could provide some more
I now have three disks all in an unusable state, causing freebsd to
panic upon seeing these disks. Common to all is that they contained
ZFS pools that were online when the computer crashed, possibly for
unrelated reasons. Upon reboot, the computer would panic when noticing
the disk; in fact, immediately after printing the standard message
giving the device name and disk type on the console.
ZFS may however be incidental to the problem: The panic happens even
if I don't have zfs.ko loaded when the problem disk is plugged in.
I wonder if it could be related to kern/127115 somehow?
I cannot get a dump unfortunately - the console says "Dumping xxx MB"
and hangs if I have activated kernel dumps (using dumpon) before
triggering the panic.
So I compiled a debug kernel and obtained a backtrace using ddb
instead. Here is output, copied by hand from a photo of the screen:

I am really not very familiar with ddb. Let me know if you wish me to
dig deeper, but then I need a pointer as to what to look for.
