I have an amd64 machine with a GENERIC 6.0-BETA2 that stops working on 
heavy disk I/O, e.g. sometimes on dump(8), but almost always during 
stage 2.1 of buildworld; otherwise it works fine for days without 
complications. There is no output to the console, the machine doesn't 
answer to pings anymore and breaking to the DDB debugger doesn't work 
too. Here is a dmesg output:

Is there still anything that I can do to get a piece of debug information?

I will install 5.4-RELEASE tomorrow to verify that this is not a 
hardware defect.
