It seems truncated, and the part about disks is missing.

Could you enable debbuging in your 1.4 kernel and send me the dmesg output ?
just set the wdcdebug_mask variable to 0x10, either in the sources or
with gdb:
gdb --write /netbsd
set wdcdebug_mask=0x10

[BTW, you'd better use pciide, this would give you DMA ... ]
