            Bug ID: 238017
           Summary: crash in dummynet, drain_scheduler_cb, si->sched ==
           Product: Base System
           Version: CURRENT
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Only Me
          Priority: ---
         Component: kern
          Assignee: bugs at FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: avg at FreeBSD.org

Unfortunately, all we have is some information from a ddb text dump.  We do not
have a vmcore and we do not have a way to re-create the crash.  It happened
once on a production system.

So, the information follows.

dn_enqueue fs 0 si 0, dropping

Here is disassembly of the function with some notes of mine:
   0xffffffff8077bde0 <+0>:     push   %rbp
   0xffffffff8077bde1 <+1>:     testb  $0x20,0x90(%rdi) // test DN_ACTIVE

   0xffffffff8077bdff <+31>:    mov    0x60(%rdx),%rax // rax = si->sched->fp
   0xffffffff8077be03 <+35>:    testb  $0x1,0x10(%rax)

So, it seems that dummynet ran into dn_sch_inst with sched field being NULL.

I am not sure how that could be possible.
Also, I am not sure if that "dn_enqueue ..." message is related to the crash.

I found a somewhat similar but different and very old report: bug 166937.
It seems that it was not really root-caused and fixed, but marked as fixed
because of a chance that it could have been caused by flaky hardware.
