panic: kthread_create called too soon

I started getting this panic from Monday this week.  The system is
an old gigabyte dual pentium II.  Scheduler is SCHED_BSD if that
makes a difference so early on in the boot.  A while back I got a
similar panic
Which, in summary, jhb thought was as a result of a missing MADT in
the ACPI whatever.  This problem in the above link went away and
has now resurfaced after about 2 months.  I do a fresh world and
kernel from current sources about every two days.
