Tested this on Gentoo/FreeBSD-7.2:
No panic, the ioctl returns 'Inappropriate ioctl for device'.

@bsd: is this still relevant?

I think it has been fixed in sys-freebsd/freebsd-sources-8.0 or later.
sys-freebsd/freebsd-sources-{8.2,9.1,9.2} exists on gentoo-x86.
So, I think may be close this bug...

I also confirmed it's already fixed in all official gentoo/freebsd version.
