I just crushed two (one at a time) FreeBSD-11.1-RELEASE machines. I 
simply plugged my Sony video camera which was in the mode of exporting 
its (msdos) filesystems over USB. Both machines have decent hardware, 
plenty of resources. Regular user was logged in to X11. One of the 
filesystems was mounted (the one holding AVCHD videos), and two seconds 
later the machine started booting (like "crashed").

And now I'm sitting in prostration and thinking: What is that I will do 

I know we choose FreeBSD over Linux for better architecture and higher
