The NetBSD Project
When root partition is mounted read-only and we have an union mount with 
a memory file system (MFS), remounting root as read/write causes a panic.
The problem has been perfectly reproductible on NetBSD-1.5/i386 and
Go to single use (not mandatory, but it's easier to mount / read-only
in single user mode), and try this (replace sd0a by your root partition)
root@violette[/root]#mkdir /tmp/mfs
root@violette[/root]#mount_mfs swap /tmp/mfs
root@violette[/root]#mount -o ro /dev/sd0a /
root@violette[/root]#mount_union /tmp/mfs /dev
root@violette[/root]#mount -o rw /dev/sd0a /
panic: lockmgr: release of unlocked lock!
