i'm not sure, but probably this does not solve our problem. this system
is used as a compilation host only (currently) and therefore there are
no permanently running things like databases, huge daemons, etc... only
ssh and syslog is up in userland. so the main question to me is, where
the memory goes on this server, and how i can prevent this type of leak.
(and even maybe help you fixin' it ;-)

our current settings are (default in GENERIC):
vm.kmem_size: 335544320
vm.kmem_size_max: 335544320

the compilation system uses a 350MB swap-based memory-disk for compilation,
the whole disks are encrypted using GELI (AES256). network traffic is low
(only ssh commandline stuff, no huge transfers).

when i issued the "du -sk" the panic occurred.

5min ago, the system panic'd again, this time some more was logged:
(originally, there have been >200 of these messages, numbers change,
g_vfs_done():md0[WRITE(offset=346742784, length=6144)]error = 28
g_vfs_done():md0[WRITE(offset=346750976, length=8192)]error = 28
g_vfs_done():md0[WRITE(offset=346761216, length=6144)]error = 28
g_vfs_done():md0[WRITE(offset=346767360, length=6144)]error = 28
g_vfs_done():md0[WRITE(offset=346773504, length=6144)]error = 28

this time the panic occurred while transferring data from the hdd's to
the md-device:

panic: kmem_malloc(4096): kmem_map too small: 335544320 total allocated
Uptime: 1h13m18s

is there any way (which is suitable for a non-c-guru like me) how i can
at least monitor, which statements cause the memory leaks? givin' it more
memory could only raise the uptime, because at this time there are no
permanently running processes except the os and ssh.
