The first thing I'd try is boot direct to the drive, without the RAID card. It seems from the dump it paniced after loading the 3ware drivers:
"RocketRAID 232x controller driver v1.02 (Jul 16 2007 17:38:56)
panic: pmap_mapdev: Couldn't alloc kernel virtual memory
cpuid = 0
KDB: enter: panic
[thread pid 0 tid 0 ]
Stopped at kdb_enter+0x2b"
This would especially be true if the RAID Array is degraded or failed. But try it with the drives directly connected to the board.
