            Bug ID: 256712
           Summary: UFS: kernel panic: ffs_blkfree_cg: freeing free frag –
                    in response to pkg-delete(8) soon after login
           Product: Base System
           Version: 13.0-RELEASE
          Hardware: amd64
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Only Me
          Priority: ---
         Component: misc
          Assignee: bugs_at_FreeBSD.org

I began with a fresh installation of FreeBSD 13.0 to UFS, then (in a nutshell): 

1. single user mode
2. tunefs -n disable
3. ee /etc/fstab
4. ee /etc/sysctl.conf
5. shutdown -r now
5. an update to the OS
6. shutdown -r now
7. /etc/pkg/FreeBSD.conf set to latest
8. tests for file system resilience. 


# Device        Mountpoint      FStype  Options Dump    Pass#
/dev/ada0s1a    /               ufs     rw,sync 1       1
/dev/ada0s1b    none            swap    sw      0       0





Tests typically involved pressing and holding the power button whilst
installing packages: 

* specifically, timing the press for interruption to occur 
  during or immediately after extraction of devel/gdb

– most, if not all, results were OK. Dozens of tests yesterday and this


For just one test, after-effects were remarkable: 

pkg: sqlite error while executing INSERT INTO files (path, sha256, package_id)
VALUES (?1, ?2, ?3) in file pkgdb.c:1825: database disk image is malformed

<https://forums.freebsd.org/threads/80925/> – the broken local.sqlite was no
surprise, given the nature of the tests and honestly, I'm not certain that the
breakage was a _direct_ consequence. I mention this incident solely as a point
of reference; unless advised otherwise, I'll treat it as negligible. 


For a next round, this morning (with the file system reportedly clean) I
_enabled_ soft updates then tested in much the same way – observing automated
file system checks and repairs at startup time. 

Shortly after a login, I ran: 

pkg delete -fy python38 gdb

The system crashed. I awaited completion of the dump, suppressed automatic
reboot and took a photograph of the backtrace. 

The round of testing that led to this situation was very brief – maybe only two
or three tests (interruptions) – so I hope to make things reproducible with not
too much difficulty.
