As a workaround I commented the KASSERT out with no ill effects.

  Don't panic in hwpmc when stopping sampling.

  When hwpmc stops sampling it will set the pm_state to something other
  than PMC_STATE_RUNNING. This means the following sequence can happen:

  CPU 0: Enter the interrupt handler
  CPU 0: Set the thread TDP_CALLCHAIN pflag
  CPU 1: Stop sampling
  CPU 0: Call pmc_process_samples, sampling is stopped so clears ps_nsamples
  CPU 0: Finishes interrupt processing with the TDP_CALLCHAIN flag set
  CPU 0: Call pmc_capture_user_callchain to capture the user call chain
  CPU 0: Find all the pmc sample are free so no call chains need to be captured
  CPU 0: KASSERT because of this

  This fixes the issue by checking if any of the samples have been stopped
  and including this in te KASSERT.
