It's a catch-22.  The panics on amd64 appear to be from a
2006-01-26 src tree.  Stefan happened to change stdio.h on
that day.  If one panicks his system 10 to 15 times trying
to isolate the problem, one runs the risk of damaging a
filesystem.  In this case, the panic appears to be related
to devfs or file descriptor code.  Well, "make buildworld"
in parallel with a "gmake check-gfortran" in a GCC tree
writing to /usr can trigger the panic in 5 to 10 minutes,
but this scrambles /usr.  So, yes, my /usr/include and src/
are probably out-of-sync, but it is what it is.
