Hi Prakash,

We have only seen this panic one time since the original fix was integrated
into illumos. I have no way to properly test your new change or reproduce
the problem from this bug. I have been working with George Wilson to try to
get him access to the dump for debugging. Maybe the best path forward is
for you and him to sync up. If both of you feel like this new patch is the
right fix for this bug, then once it is integrated into illumos, we'll pull
it over right away and it will start being used in production at that time.
Otherwise, I am not sure how I can help here since I can't put your patch
into production and I have no other way to do any meaningful testing on
this change.
