Ok first an apology there was feedback to 116720 which I didnt know
until now. I did another crash on the watch but had foreground fsck
set in rc.conf and did another immediate reboot afterwards and as
expected because no bg fsck running it didnt crash.
Patching it now and will also enable full debugging on the kernel.
