If you can, always run with the kernel debugger compiled into the
kernel. In Linux land, this means patching the kernel (though I
suspect that some distros would be shipping with kdb enabled kernel).

In the FreeBSD land, whenever there is a panic, it drops into the
debugger (provided the kernel was compile d with the DDB option on)
and I can look at the back trace and report a bug.
