            Bug ID: 214169
           Summary: Kernel panic using IPv6 and TCP-SIGNATURE (IPSEC)
           Product: Base System
           Version: 11.0-STABLE
          Hardware: amd64
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Only Me
          Priority: ---
         Component: kern

After migrate my gateway to FreeBSD 11 STABLE, the quagga bgpd daemon started
to cause kernel panics in my gateway every time quagga starts.
At first, I thought it was a quagga related problem and I tried to replace it
to OpenBGPD. But as soon as I started openbgpd, the system crashed again.
After that, I was able to trace the problem to some bgp peers using password
protected connections. A few more tests showed that the problem only happened
in IPv6 connections.
Since bgp protected connections use RFC 2385 TCP MD5 signatures option, I've
tried to simulate the problem in other environment using IPSEC and netcat (nc
As expected, every time I tried to connect two hosts with TCP-MD5 signatures,
the host opening the connection crashes. Nothing happens to the host listening
to connections.
I've forced to downgrade my gateway to FreeBSD 10.3, and since then, my gateway
has worked without any failure.

The kernel panics as follow:

Fatal trap 12: page fault while in kernel mode
cpuid = 1; apic id = 01

- In a system with TCP_SIGNATURE kernel option enabled, enable IPSEC and add a
TCP-MD5 key in /etc/ipsec.conf for each side of connection.

- Run nc -6S <host ipv6> <port>
