I would have expected a kernel panic myself :)

There are no shared-storage filesystems for FreeBSD.

NFS mount the filesystem from one machine to the other.  If you really
need fast access, buy a pair of $50 gigabit NICs, put one in each
machine, and hook them up with a crossover cable.

With a bit of work, you can probably even do a failover setup where if
the primary fails, the secondary will fsck and mount the filesystem
