Kernel panic hfsc_dequeue after upgrading 2.40b to latest

(I'm not sure if this should go here, or in the 2.4 Development section. Admins please move as needed)
My remote SG1000 became inaccessible after I (foolishly) upgraded the firmware remotely. After 12 hours, I drove to site, and found the console was going through the startup process. Odd. I sat there and waited; after a few minutes the webconfigurator came up, albeit sluggish. I didn't record the original beta firmware version; after the upgrade, the dashboard shows "2.4.0-BETA (arm) / built on Mon Mar 06 02:44:10 CST 2017 / FreeBSD 11.0-RELEASE-p8" if that helps anyone.
After 10 minutes, the console screen came up with "kernel panic" .. something .. "hfsc_dequeue" then I lost the connection and the SG1000 restarted. This cycle then repeated. (Of course I neglected to take a screenshot here too..)
To resolve it, while the webconfigurator was briefly available, I removed the HFSC shaper. I had originally had this in because I was going to use it on my VLANs (not on the host interface because that's not supported on this platform yet). But I hadn't assigned any traffic to any queues at this stage. After removing the shaper, the system became stable again and I've had no further issues.
I've seen a few other kernel panic threads floating around, but didn't notice any for hfsc_dequeue. Was my process wrong for applying HFSC for VLANs only on an SG1000, or is this a bug? Just throwing this out there.
