>From the state of the process you provided, it is a new (zigote) of the
forking process, which was already linked into allproc list.  Also,
it seems that bzero part of the forking procedure was finished, but bcopy
was not yet.  The p_pgrp cannot be a pointer, it is not yet initialized.

There, we have at least one issue, since zigote is linked before the
p_pgrp is initialized, and the proctree/allproc locks are dropped.
As result, fork_findpid() accesses memory with undefined content.

It seems that the least morbid solution is to slightly extend the scope
of the allproc lock in do_fork(), to prevent fork_findpid() from working
while we did not finished copying data from old to new process.
