after reverting a few patches (including yours) i got rid of the problem. i
then re-applied your patch and noticed that (as you said) it wasn't causing
i don't have any fdescfs specific patches in my src. i suspect however 
being responsible for the panic. after backing it out i got no more panics in
connection with `portsnap fetch`.
thanks for the help
i'm not sure but i think i've asked this question once before in this thread:
in sys/kern/vfs_syscalls.c:kern_rmdirat() there's still local code to check
for "." and "/" after applying your patch. isn't this all being done by
calling namei() now?
