As far as I can tell the reboots are related to a faulty strlen call when
compiled with clang. Change compiler to gcc the problem goes away

RE: http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=177459 

After rebuilding FreeBSD 10.0-CURRENT from SVN the other night, the machine
would reboot randomly, either instantly or within 5 minutes or so, it seemed
to be related to the nvidia driver. The patch allowed me to update the
driver.. which seemed to work. BUT the machine did reboot again maybe an
hour later. I've disabled the driver again.. so far it's been running OK
without reboot.

*** I'm not 100% it's the nvidia driver to blame but it could be.. anyone
else have a reboot issue? 
I actually have another card (non-nvidia) I'm thinking about putting into
that machine so it might not be an issue for me anymore, anyway :)
