A few days ago, I started to get frequent panics on a laptop running
9.2-RELEASE.  The message is:

panic: ffs_valloc: dup alloc

and the backtrace from the core.txt file is:

KDB: stack backtrace:

I don't really have any experience with FreeBSD kernel dumps, so I
don't know how to pick out what's important.  How do I proceed to
resolve this problem?

(Also note that I have 9.1-RELEASE installed on the same machine on a
different slice which is stable, so I think hardware problems are not
likely to be a factor.)
