I have Fatal trap 9: general protection fault while in kernel mode with 
FreeBSD 7.2 and kernel csup'ed and build on 22 Oct using 
standard-supfile. How can I find out what is the problem?

Kernel config:

GENERIC config was changed: I disabled options for hardware that I do 
not require on this server and added some options

options QUOTA
options KDB
options DDB

I am using aacu RAID driver from Adaptec's site:

aacu0: Adaptec 2405, aac driver 2.2.8-17517

What can it be? Soft-updates? aacu driver problem? Something else? Any 
help would be appreciated.
