I was going to send a similar email a few hours ago to the current 
ML but decided to debug some more before that.

I use poudriere to manage my ports tree with svn, I do use ZFS. I 
can trigger the panic by running poudriere bulk on e.g. 

Some more info that may be related:
- This worked fine on a build from the 2nd week of August, after 
  r350551 (a fix for AMD Ryzen laptops).
- Since that build had an issue with bhyve (as mentioned on this 
  list a few days ago), I upgraded last week which started 
  triggering this issue with poudriere
- It still happens with:
    # uname -v
    FreeBSD 13.0-CURRENT r351654+209e505321db-c262365(master) 
  Which is posterior to r351642 that was mentioned by Mateusz.

FWIW: I am not 100% sure I it's the same panic, I am missing a 
cable ATM to get a full dump, but I do think they sound very
