Under heavy CPU load, after a an hour or so FreeBSD will panic and reboot with the following:

panic: kernel stack overflow - trapframe at 0xffffffff80835eb0
cpuid = 0

The panic is identical all the time and only happens under heavy CPU load which of course may well happen in the field.

Ideally I'd like someone to advise me on how to debug the problem, failing that it should be easy enough to recreate.

It may well be a hardware issue as these boxes do run very hot, bordering on thermal design limits.
Start compiling a port.
