panic after resume, triggered by vt_switch_timer() ?

I think I have hit a panic in the code path for vt_switch_timer() when
resuming from suspend.

In both cases it happened, the laptop was suspended for >2 hours.

In both cases, c_func is vt_switch_timer(), and c_arg is a negative
value (both times it is -2133611368).  I am not sure if these are valid
values for vt_switch_timer(), but it caught my eye.

The amount of time the laptop has been suspended may be unrelated, but
so far has been the only constant in numerous attempts to reproduce the

The machine is running 11.0-CURRENT #202 r262562, and the only recent
change to the kernel configuration is switching from sc(4) to vt(4)
a few weeks ago.  Prior to this, I could leave the machine suspended for
several hours (sometimes up to 4 when traveling), without issue.
