Since we've stresstested this box with packets and compiling and other
chores, I strongly suspect the memory is not at fault.  The memory is
also registered ECC.

I'll have them run memory tests, but I'm at least the second
independant person to report that FAST_IPSEC and amd64 are broken.

The difference between the divide error and the GPF error was
recompiling the kernel to dump --- so it's possible (I'm not in front
of the machine) that the GPF is a second panic when it tries to dump.
