Just an observation, but that address translates to 2^47 =
140,737,488,355,328 which sounds to me like a very high address... Now,
I'm not certain if FBSD uses memory mapped I/O with numbers this high
(granted, 64 bits allows for 2^64 addressable memory positions...), but
if that is indeed the case, if push really comes to shove you could try
figuring out just what is being accessed at that position (RAM? HD?).
Once you know that, you could check if perhaps that part is broken.
Errors like these do sound to me somewhat like a memory error when
accessing that particular address (does it also mention other
addresses?), but then, I'm no expert, so maybe somethig entirely
different is going on.
