if_dc.c causes page fault while in kernel mode; coredump; reproducible

I'm currently experiencing periodic page faults with my FreeBSD
when shutting down (power-down). I've experienced this behavior in
6.0-RELEASE (GENERIC) and in 6.0-STABLE (GENERIC) cvsup'ed 2005-12-22

Not beeing a kernelhacker myself I've come to the conclusion that
something in the dc driver is freed to soon or perhaps a lock isn't
held. It might have something to do with ACPI as the powerdown is close.

I've got two crashdumps for 6.0-RELEASE and three for 6.0-STABLE and
it seems to be reproducible. To reproduce I set up a machine to
ping my FreeBSD box and tell the FreeBSD box ``shutdown -p now''.
All suggestions are welcome.

The crashdump header looks like this:
