-CURRENT fatal trap cause by cxgbe module

So I've been fighting with any current from the last month or so
instantly crashing when I boot it.  I did notice that kernels in the
various snapshot images were working, however, so I was trying to
figure out why.  At first I thought it was because I had INVARIANTS
and such disabled, but no, I finally figured it out.

I've had in my /boot/loader.conf for a while now:


I guess since the stock installer kernels don't have cxgbe enabled by
default.  I added "device cxgbe" to my kernels a while ago.  Normally
the kernel would give some error about the module already being loaded
or something and just continue.  As of last month or so, however,
instead it just crashes:

If I take the if_cxgbe_load out, however, it boots fine.
