panic in swap_pager_swap_init (amd64/smp/6.2-pre)

I tried to upgrade an amd64x2 box from "FreeBSD 6.1-STABLE #36: Mon Sep
4 11:22:15 EDT 2006" to "FreeBSD 6.2-PRERELEASE #1: Mon Nov 13 10:01:57
EST 2006" and found that a newly built kernel panics on boot and locks
up solid after printing:
SMP: AP CPU #1 Launched!
panic: failed to create swap_zone.
A few reboots later I also discovered that:
- GENERIC (UP) kernel works fine;
- SMP kernel fails in the same way;
- my kernel (a stripped down SMP) with "options SMP" removed works;
- my kernel with SMP enabled and either -v or -d (followed by cont)
("works" in the last case is defined as: I could upgrade gnome
2.14->2.16 with buildworld -j2 going at the same time)
old dmesg: http://www.omut.org/~lxv/bbox-dmesg-20060824
new dmesg (-v): http://www.omut.org/~lxv/bbox-dmesg-20061113-v
kernel config: http://www.omut.org/~lxv/bbox-GENERIC-BBOX
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
