OK - I was finally able to test this out.

I completely reverted a machine (sunfire V120) to a stock 9.1-RELEASE
kernel.  I completely reverted the smartmontools.

I double-checked that the combination of that kernel, and that binary
still caused the problem. Check.

Then I applied your patch to the kernel and tried the smartd program
again.  No panic.

It appears your patch fixes the problem.
