This is a known problem. It occured after a commit by jhb@ to the ipc
stuff. Search the archives, I don't remember the exact details. So far
nobody with an amd64 system was able to provide the necessary debug
info to fix this.
Maybe instead of playing with gdb/ddb/printfs it may be also possible
to use the linux test project testcases to frind the problem. You can
download a precompiled version of it from:
Have a look at http://wiki.FreeBSD.org/linux-kernel for a description
how to use it and what tests are known to hang on i386 (they may or
may not hand on amd64, and some of the tests are known to need a
little bit of time). I suggest to do this in a gentoo-chroot
(linux_dist port, not the linux_base port).
Feel free to add content to the wiki.

I don't like this fix. Why not use the package from the build cluster instead?
