I cannot reproduce this. Can you please make the core available and write
the exact sequence of commands you use to make your system crash ?

Core dump uploaded to leaf: ~thomas/crash/38
How to reproduce (results in immediate crash here every time):
on i386 (didn't try x86_64 yet)
# mount mfs file system, and umount i again
mount -t mfs -o -s=655360 swap /boot/tmp2

Here's the problem:
MFS's mfs_start() routine is not like other filesystems; the userland mount_mfs enters the mfs_start routine and processes copyin/copyout requests to transfer data into its userland mmap-ed region. When it returns after either being signalled or the filesystem being unmounted, the mount structure is not valid.
Unfortunately, sys_unmount() already kfree-d the mount structure; both the accounting init and MPUNLOCK(mp) in vfs_vfsops.c:vfs_start() are not safe; they are accessing the mountpoint after it is freed.
