hi, I apply your patch on this
[root at capoor-daemon /usr/src]# git show
commit 4ec1d958bad5e78bcd3cc61a0da6b5a1302f8ec2
Author: kensmith <kensmith at FreeBSD.org>
Date:   Mon Nov 14 00:45:25 2011 +0000

    The releng/9.0 release branch has been created so convert stable/9 over
    to our standard "Politically Correct" name for the balance of the
    release cycle.

    Approved by:        re (implicit)

when my machine shutdown in my absence yesterday evening, I find a
kernel oops this morning,(sorry, just printf, I can not get a kernel
the kernel says it is at uncore_pcpu_fini+0x5b
I check the source, and it is at
static int
uncore_pcpu_fini(struct pmc_mdep *md, int cpu)
	for (n = 0; n < npmc; n++)
		wrmsr(UCP_EVSEL0 + n, 0); //here
here is my cpu type, and build hwpmc into kernel

I will try to apply this to current to see if this is reproduced.
