Not much
System: NetBSD 4.99.69
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386
	The system crashed when I killed a pppd process.

	I was in X at the time, and could not switch to the text console
	or enter ddb or obtain a kernel core dump.

	The pppd process was accessing a com port on a pcmcia card at the
	time of the crash.

	Insert pcmcia modem card (com at pcmcia at cardslot at cbb at

	Run pppd.

	kill -1 ${pid_of_pppd}

	watch system crash.
	Unknown, but possibly related to PR 39035 and PR 39131.  (It was the
	same modem card in all these PRs.)
