Well... I had an another panic but it's a bit different from the 
previous panics I've got
with nve (http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=83943),but it is 
quite similar to
an another panic I've recently had on RELENG_6. 
I took a piece of paper again and wrote down the trace output:

panic: nve_ifstart: attempted use of a free mbuf!
KDB: enter: panic

Look at the second PR I mentioned. It is a general protection fault, but 
the trace output is quite similar.
They must be in relation.
