I'm not there and cannot see over your shoulder, but my opinion differs regarding the apparent root cause.

I would guess that the root cause is a damaged /bsd file, as that file is the source of the kernel symbol name list being created by kvm_mkdb. The program goes off the rails because the input is not valid. I assume that strtab + sbuf.st_name in nlist.c line 218 points outside the kernel address space, causing the segfault.
