Tried with INVARIANTS and WITNESS .. no lor etc. happening, just the
panic in propagate_priority(). This 'rip' lock is used both by netinet
and netinet6, might this be a problem in this case ? OSPF6 uses a raw-ip
socket to send ipv6 dgrams which are then encapsulated in gif0 in a raw ipv4
packet maybe using the lock twice ?

BTW: This was working on 5.2-CURRENT with a kernel from around mid june.
