So the results.

Xeon machine: boots fine until 832MB RAM, after that came the known error. I raised memory in 32MB steps, so 832MB is fine and 864MB causes the crash.

Opteron machine with 512MB (I think Colin wanted to debug this error not the memory related.):

FreeBSD VM has 1GB memory. And this problem does not appear when I reduce amount of RAM to 512 MB. Unfortunately, currently I dont have any servers with AMD Opteron CPU to test.
