described: I tried to upgrade from 11-Release-p11 to 11.2 doing:

svn co svn://svn.FreeBSD.org/base/releng/11.2  /usr/src > & system-11.2.log
svn co svn://svn.FreeBSD.org/base/stable/11  /usr/src > & system-stable.log


svnlite up /usr/src

After 3 tries, I could have the system compiled (if I use maje -j 6
directive to compile, I got error: this worked only in a serial 1-proc

but there was a kernel panic followed of cycling reboot process.

I work around removing the whole /usr/src and /usr/obj, recreating them,
and fetching 11.1 sources:

svnlite up /usr/src

I did not need to start in a single-user mode: I just pressed 5 (to load a
non-default kernel) and chose old-kernel. Booting using old-kernel (11.1) I
could rebuild the userland. After this, I gave up to run 11.2-RELEASE.

In time, my uname -a returns:
FreeBSD matata 11.1-RELEASE-p11 FreeBSD 11.1-RELEASE-p11 #0 r335864: Mon
Jul  2 14:44:51 -03 2018     root at matata:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  amd64

I was thinking that this problem happened only with me, but now I see other
people that can have the situition
