r243530 added the new sysctl that is causing panic.  I'm not sure why
there's an sbuf_trim() call; there shouldn't be more than a few \n at
the end.  IMO the sbuf_trim() can be eliminated.

Alternately, the panic check can be removed and we could allow
sbuf_trim() to remove any un-emitted whitespace for an sbuf with

CC'ing mav@ who introduced the code.  (I introduced sbuf drains).
