Well - My configuration is amd64- CURRENT as of yesterday  - It's looks like
the fault is triggered by a sysctl query. At least that is how I can
reproduce it. E.g.

Kldload /boot/modules/nvidia.ko
sysctl -a 

system panics - unfortunately with a generic kernel with all debugging
enabled the system does not panic. In addition if nvidia-driver is compiled
with gcc - no panic.

FWIW: I have been using clang to build FreeBSD (and x11/nvidia-driver) in
both head and stable/9 on my laptop since May 2012.

I have not experienced the "random reboots".  I am also building/running

If there is an issue with clang generating incorrect code for strlen(),
getting that issue properly documented so it may be fixed would seem to be
