panic in signalfd
When running a zone-reboot workload, I've been able to reliably induce failures similar to this on my memory-constrained test VM:

Looking back, I believe part of the root cause behind this issue was how the lifetime of a signalfd instance related to its association with processes which may have utilized it. If a signalfd handle was shared between processes via fork(), the signalfd_close handler (which cleans up references in the proc_t) would only fire when the last fd reference was closed. This could lead to clean-up ordering which would result in stale/freed signalfd resources being referenced.
