Actually I realized something else.

I already had the dumpdir variable set in rc.conf


and from fstab, we see that its the swap

# Device                Mountpoint      FStype  Options         Dump 
/dev/ad0s1b             none            swap    sw              0       0

But I didnt have /var/crash. Although I dont think this is the problem 
but there is something weird in messages file. The message that savecore

So I dont know why savecore says that there were no dumps. Am I missing 
something? I know fixed the missing dumpdir directive in rc.conf also. 
But anyway, lets see what will happen next time when the machine crash.

The funnier thing is that it seems like the panic message came when the 
machine was booting already, and it still continued booting, isnt this a 
bit weird? Shouldnt it be like at about 15:27 when the machine actually
