I think I've isolated it to natd traffic.

The system stays up reliably with natd disabled but hangs within a couple of minutes of an
inbound ipv4 traffic.

If I just run with the ipfw rule and the divert kernel module, then no problem the system
runs albeit without any real ipv4 traffic working for obvious reasons. But I can happily
do anything I like in ipv6 and it runs fine.

But as soon as natd is run with inbound traffic such as an ssh session, then the system
mostly hangs and according to the vultr console, it's spinning at 100% CPU.

I say "mostly hangs" because I have now caused at least one core dump while ostensibly
reproducing the hang.

Here is a snippet of crashinfo data. Happy to provide more to anyone but it's 90K so I
didn't think it appropriate to post it here.

Happy to provide further info and run anything that folk think might help provide more
useful diagnostic info.

Oh, the interface, if it's relevant, is:

vtnet0: <VirtIO Networking Adapter> on virtio_pci0
