This seems to have started since going to 11.1 U1. I work from home mostly and use ISCSI mounts as RDM devices in ESX 5.5 for a test Microsoft SQL cluster for a customer. The box itself has 2 1Gb NICs both being used in round-robin for ISCSI LUNS to a white box ESX box also with 2 active 1Gb NICs.

Since the last updated when bring up or down the cluster disks my Freenas box often crashes. I was trying to find logs to look at, but so far I can't find anything in logs etc that may give me clues. I do have quite a few RDM disks (10) and its hardly server-quality hardware, but it was working fine until the last update.

This may have been RAM related either lack of or something else. I noticed that my freenas box was only showing 8GB of RAM though 16GB is installed, I reseated the RAM and all 16GB showed up again. I then failed the ISCSI RDMs between nodes several times in my VMWare lab and it did not crash. So far it looks as though that may have been the cause. I thought it had started when I upgraded to 11.1U1, but it could have been coincidental that it occurred roughly at the same time.
