Unfortunately your traceback is useless without your kernel. Ideally
what you should do is turn on kernel crash dumps -- uncomment the last
6 lines of /etc/init.d/sysetup.

In the mean time, you can decode each of the memory references from
your dmesg by hand with adb.

tcp_rput_data+0x650: 0

etc. Of course, ultimately you'll probably need to forward info to Sun
to get a real good diagnosis, but sometimes you can figure out the
problem yourself.

Anyhow, you might want to decode your hex addresses and post the
new stack trace et al to the list.
