OK, to reproduce, three steps apart from having an ext2 file system
(the ext2 FS is clean according to e2fsck)

mount_ext2fs /dev/ad0s5 /linux
mount_nullfs /linux /mnt
umount /mnt                    -> panic, "locking against myself"

backtrace in the kernel debugger, copied manually:

kdb_enter
panic   +0x13d
lockmgr +0x44d
vop_stdlock +0x2f
VOP_LOCK_APV
vn_lock
vrele
null_reclaim
VOP_RECLAIM_APV
vgonel
vgone
vflush
nullfs_unmount
dounmount
unmount
syscall...
(process unmount)

If needed, I can save a core of this.
