My -CURRENT used to crash every time lpr has been used but the panic went away
when John Baldwin committed his ithread cleanup megapatch:

   Modified files:
     sys/i386/i386        nexus.c 
     sys/i386/isa         intr_machdep.c intr_machdep.h ithread.c 
   Use the MI ithread helper functions in the x86 interrupt code.

The kernel from Feb 9 worked just fine for me, but then the following
commit has been made and the system started to crash again:

  Re-enable preemption on interrupts.  My last commit accidentally reverted
  it as I was playing with some other ways of doing kernel preemption.

If you badly need your printer to work, you can simply revert this patch.
