 Update info:
 Meanwhile I did further tests, here are the results:
 To exclude some broken hardware issues I did the test on another machine 
 (Celeron 533/i81[05]) with a similar hw/sw setup (scsi to boot, ad0+ad2 for 
 vinum-mirror). Again the kernel crashes, here we have a double pagefault, 
 second one triggered by syncing disks as it seems to me. All dumps are save 
 for later use.
 Again I was unable to trigger a panic on the replacement hw without using 
 vinum. It seems to be that vinum at least helps to trigger a panic when 
 doing ide disk io.
 Further investigations of the trap 18 div-by-zero dump gdb shows that 
 (within a vinum function) parts of the drive->partinfo.disklab struct gets 
 overwritten with zeros and the hostname. As a result, dev/vinum/vinumio.c, 
 function driveio, computation of the block number bombs out because 
 d_secsize is zero.
      330:   bp->b_blkno = offset / drive->partinfo.disklab->d_secsize
 (All with 4.8R source from CD)
 In the hope this is some useful information,
