Not quite sure if the problem is in either of the two aforementioned acts or in
the combination, but while doing that (with netif names I'm thinking
of "ifconfig some_netif name new_name") I was able to panic the machine.

After getting "kernel: Non-unique normal route, mask not entered" in the dmesg
(immediatelly after loading my custom pf.conf - do note, that it does not
happen all the time, loaded the rules quite a few times to get this message),
I loaded my pf.conf again (pfctl -f /etc/pf.conf) and the machine fortunately
panicked for me (in the previous two instances of this problem, the machine
hanged and was completely unresponsive ... to ping, serial console, everything
was dead).

The dump is located at leaf:~rumko/crash/pf/ and the backtrace is:

After some netif have been renamed (was not able to reproduce panic on a machine
where no netif have been renamed) I can easily panic the machine with "pfctl -s
all; pfctl -f /etc/pf.conf; pfctl -f /etc/pf.conf" ... after the first reload of
the pf.conf, I get "kernel: Non-unique normal route, mask not entered" and the
second reload panics the machine (still working on getting a dump):

PF is going to be unstable until Jan tokenizes it.  All of its entry
points are MP now and PF itself is not.

Do you have the possibility to try out my working branch?

I tried

  1. ifconfig re0 name lan0
  2. pfctl -s all
  3. pfctl -f /etc/pf.conf
  4. pfctl -f /etc/pf.conf
  5. pfctl -f /etc/pf.conf

on a 4core VM with that branch and didn't experience any failure.

A bit more info...
it seems before I wasn't running a verbose boot 'cause with latest master I get
kernel: pfr_unroute_kentry: delete failed.
last message repeated 7 times
kernel: Non-unique normal route, mask not entered
and after that a panic ... so it seems it can't delete a few entries ...
rn_delete called from pfr_unroute_kentry() in sys/net/pf/pf_table.c returns null?
after that I guess that the same entries that couldn't be deleted are added
through rn_addroute() and rn_addroute() at that time spits out "Non-unique
normal route, mask not entered" ... then pf gets confused and panics? have not
researched further than that yet
