for those, who are interested in:

this issue was not related to UFS but to GELI.
we were trying to use a 8KB sector size on the geli
provider, which caused the panic.
using 4KB as sector size works.

the command before:
geli init -bP -e 3DES -K /my/test.key -s 8192 /dev/da0

and after:
geli init -bP -e 3DES -K /my/test.key -s 4096 /dev/da0
