I grab a new set of updated source about 8 in the morning
everyday, and today's kernel won't even boot for me. After it initialized
everything normally, I get a vm_fault in wdcstart.

Seems its getting called from here:


        else if ((wdc->sc_flags & WDCF_ACTIVE) == 0) {
                printf("wdstrategy: controller inactive\n");
I see the printf, and then I fault. Are there any known problems with
turning on DIAGNOSTIC?
