I'm having the same problem, upgrading 1.3.2 to a July snapshot. I thought
perhaps it would be fixed by now, but it doesn't look like it. My i386 box
is an Intitiative Technologies 486DX100 w/32M and VLB. As near as I can
tell, the ahc7xxx driver is not requesting memory properly, but I wouldn't
have any idea as to how to fix it.

This doesn't seem to be in the bug database, though kern/5155 is close.
Care to file a pr? I have to go out of town Sunday, until Thursday, so 
I won't be able to follow up until then.
