Obtaining a kernel dump is not possible

my ThinkPad gets a kernel panic if I boot a kernel with atapicam
enabled. So I try to obtain a crash dump to get a backtrace.
Unfortunately it seems so, that the kernel crashs quit early. Although I
put dumpdev=/dev/ad0s1b in my loader.conf, I can't call doadump without
getting the message: "Partition too small. Dump failed."
I think, that the dumpdev hasn't been assigned at that specific moment
to the dumperinfo. Or is there another way to specify the dumpdev?
How can I all the same obtain a crash dump?
