I just updated the kernel to RC2, if I get one more freeze I will 
rebuild and run it as debug.

BTW are there instructions how to build debug kernel (8.1) ?
Somehow googling "building debug FreeBSD kernel" doesn't fetch 
instructions for *debug* kernel, it only fetches instructions for just 
kernel which I do frequently. I know there should be WITNESS and 
DIAGNOSTIC options enabled, also coredumps should be enabled. But are 
there step by step instructions online?

Also when the system freezes will it dump core? Or how do I make it to 
dump core if there is no SEGV?
