Yea, I don't think a kernel panic is going to be something we can fix
quickly. Maybe try with acpi disabled, and baring that you'll want to do
a fresh install.
If you backup your /usr/home and /usr/Programs directory though, that
should be be enough to bring all your apps back. Also grab
/usr/local/kde4/share/applnk for your PBI menu icons and such.
With that kernel panic, it may be a good idea to report it to the
FreeBSD folks so they can get a look at what may be causing the crash.
