What OS version? There was a similar problem experienced on multi-core
machines where some of the boot messages were getting interleaved like
that.  It was harmless, other than being aesthetically unpleasing -- I
believe it has been fixed in 8.2-RELEASE or later.

If you can demonstrate the problem on a recent version of the OS, and it
is definitely not the another instance of problem I describe above, then
yes, that's certainly worth an e-mail to freebsd-stable at ... and possibly
a PR as well.
