if you have newer sources as your last build I would recommend to 'make
world' again. If you have tried to boot an old kernel?

If you have the time to compile the world with recent sources you maybe
uncomment ipfw in your kernel-config. It should be automaticly loaded as
module on boot-time. So if the error isn't getting away, you could
'kldunload' it.
