Speaking of MSI being on by default in recent 6-STABLE ... well,
that caused my ThinkPad T61 (8859-CTO) ...
kernel (combined for easy perusal):
... to go in panic. So, for now I have added ...
# Since MSI turned on by default on 2008.01.10.21.17.12 UTC,
# causes panic so disable MSI.
... to /boot/loader.conf.
 I could not save the dump for neither do I have access to
serial console, nor could the file system be mounted. Missing
also here is a digital camera. If anybody is interested, I
could write screen down, and repeat to them.
