hmm I wonder if my instructions to build SIFTR manually are causing your
problems. Fabian, is the siftr.ko module you're loading built as part of
a "make buildkernel", or did you follow my instructions and "cd
</path/to/src>/sys/modules/siftr ; make ; kldload ./siftr.ko"?
If the latter is true, perhaps try and explicitly build SIFTR as part of
"make buildkernel" and see if loading the module built that way still
triggers the panic when enabled (the module will be in
or if you "make installkernel" it'll be in /boot/kernel/kernel/siftr.ko).
