Note that receiving zfs processes may also crash on FreeBSD 11:

The cause hasn't been analysed yet and from your description
it's not clear to me if it's the same assertion that's being
triggered, but in my case the problem is reproducible, so you
could look for receiving datasets that are missing snapshots
that should have been received already.

If no snapshots are missing, it's probably an unrelated issue.

Obviously checking the backtrace wouldn't hurt either.
