Is it always the exact same panic or is it random?
A box here had a few random "trap 12 page fault" panics recently,
especially while booting up cold but also at run time, and the
problem turned out to be bad capacitors on the motherboard.
If you have physical access look at the capacitors on the board
to see if they are bulged of even leak.

You might want to configure dumping, see dumpon(8).
Look at the traces you get from the dumps:
kgdb /boot/kernel/kernel <dumpfile>
It helps to run a kernel compiled with DEBUG=-g.
I think this is default in GENERIC on 6.2.
If the crashes are at seemingly random points in the kernel
code you probably have a hardware problem. If it's always the
same trace then post it.
