Adding a Crystal-2A card (2GB/Sec PCI Dual FC Network Adapter) into a domain's configuration using cfgadm results in errors, and then a domain panic.

#  cfgadm -c configure pcisch0:e09b1slot1
- error message - "Hardware specific error"

Then the /var/adm/messages or the domain console show a panic:
