Did the filesystems come up clean?  That would be a hint that the
kernel shut down on purpose.  [I wouldn't expect it, since you said
there were no hints in the logs, but it's worth checking.

Next step is probably to set up a serial console and see if anything
useful is showing up there when the shutdown occurs.  Also try to get
and track any information about system temperature, voltage, and so
on; these kinds of phantom powerdowns are usually power trouble in my
experience.

I can't find that message in the -STABLE sources.  Admittedly, it was
a very quick search, but are you sure you copied it exactly?
