Hi, you created this post as a document instead of a normal post....

On the other hand, it looks that the switch panic'd, there are some defects reporting similar events.

What is the FOS release?

Is the switch currently working?

can you post the output of switchstatusshow?

It looks like a code defect to me. A good option is to open a case with the switch vendor in order to have switch healthchecked and the dump file reviewed. Or if that is not an option, I recommend you to upgrade the FOS code.
