Thanks for your answer.

The problem is still there, unfortunately.

Crashes no more on pagedaemon though, for a change, but on irq48:em0...

Would you have KVA_PAGES / maxvnodes recommendation for this case ?

Was your answer based on painful trial-and-error, or is there a logical 
reason (known bad HTT or PAE or Xeon support) ?

Should I revert to 4-STABLE to get solid PAE+SMP support ?
