more zfs/nfs panics

I'm trying to tar a rather big directory via nfs (some 800gb), it
has many subdirectories, some of them with many files (close to 10^6 :-)

just before the server panics, the tar (on the client) starts complaining 
about lost
files, or permition denied, but not in the pathological directories.
panic: kmem_malloc(-1661382656): kmem_map too small: 645009408 total allocated
cpuid = 3
KDB: enter: panic

I have increased 
it just seems to delay the panic though, it smells like some memory leak ...

the host is running amd64 quad core, 7.1-prerelease and 8GB.
