I am getting a really bad crashing issue on a few of my servers after they
have been running great for almost 1 year now. The main error is "kernel
trap 12 with interrupts disabled" but here is a screen dump from the crash.

kernel trap 12 with interrupts disabled

Fatal trap 12: page fault while in kernel mode
cpuid = 6; apic id = 06
fault virtual address = 0x104
fault code = supervisor read, page not present

processor eflags = resume, IOPL = 0
current process = 5 (thread taskq)

cpuid = 6
Uptime = 10d15h47m26s
Cannot dump. No dump device defined.
Automatic reboot in 15 seconds - press a key on the console to abort
cpu_reset: Stopping other CPUs

The server hangs from there and has to be hard reset with power button.
