Not sure this helps: But we have seen this also after system panics
when having soft update journaling enabled. Having soft update journaling
disabled, we do not observed this after several panics.
Just to be clear: The panics are not related to this issue,
but to other network development we do.

Also reproduced on two new installs by my co-op students:

- system panics for some reason, unrelated to filesystems
- fsck SU+J runs after reboot
- kernel reports many cylinder checksum failures

  bsdinstall: disable SUJ by default

  SUJ + cg checksums produce spurious warnings after an unclean shutdown
  (e.g. a crash).  For now disable SUJ for UFS installs so installing from

Please retry with this change included as I believe it will fix the problem.

  Correct fsck journal-recovery code to update a cylinder-group
  check-hash after making changes to the cylinder group. The problem
  was that the journal-recovery code was calling the libufs bwrite()
  function instead of the cgput() function. The cgput() function updates
  the cylinder-group check-hash before writing the cylinder group.

I tried this patch with success on my laptop! Thank you Kirk :)

With softupdates journaling enabled and this patch applied, I made my system panic three times followed by a reboot. 
System reboot was fine and no problems were observed.
