System: NetBSD 7.99.21 NetBSD 7.99.21 (MODULAR) #414: Sat Nov 21 12:20:44 CET 2015 sparc64
Architecture: sparc64
Machine: sparc64

Sometimes during file system tests (but not exactly reproducable) I see
strange effects from a userland process dying (for unrelated reasons; have
not been able to catch a crash dump of that yet).

This leaves the system in a semi-corrupted state: a rump mount is still
there, but no rump process. On next reboot, when trying to detach
putter, the kernel panics due to a memory fault in putter_detach, apparently
putter_ilist has been corrupted (somehow).

No idea yet, have seen it several times but could not easily reproduce
it. Always happend durning a full atf test run for me.
