Yes, I believe that both hangs/panic is caused by the same problem, as both
symptom could be reproduced by same procedure.

I made a simple script to reproduce the problem on both GENERIC/debug kernels,
10.3 and 11.0. I reproduced and observed the problem by
 - running 'top' on console and start following script via ssh, or
 - running 'top' and following script on 'tmux'

I can reproduce the problem almost instantly after running the script. If you
cannot reproduce the problem, try to re-run the script several times after
cleaning up processes using 'pkill watchman xargs'.

'watchman' command can be installed with 'pkg'.


#!/usr/bin/env bash

mkdir -p foo bar
seq -w 0 100 | xargs -n1 -I{} touch foo/{}.c

| watchman -p -j --server-encoding=json > /dev/null &
while true; do find bar/ -type f | xargs -n1 -P5 -I'{}' mv '{}' foo; done &
while true; do find foo/ -type f | xargs -n1 -P5 -I'{}' mv '{}' bar; done &
