Now that the ahcisata issues with the first drive not probing correctly
seems to be ironed out (thanks!), I figured I'd update my Feb 11th

had high confidence in it working on my home server. Unfortunately, I
had to roll back to Feb 11, due to the following 4 issues:
Neither root nor a normal user can login. More precisely, entering
proper credentials on either the serial console or via ssh seems to
work, insomuch as I see the NetBSD banner, and the requisite "You have
new mail" line. But then instead of a shell prompt, I'm returned to the
login prompt. I can't find anything in authlog (which makes sense,
since I did seem to authenticate properly!) or /var/log/messages. This
one has me utterly stumped.
In single-user mode (since I can't login in multi-user...see above),
"vipw" reports that it cannot find /usr/bin/vi (no such file or
directory). Of course, "vi" does reside there, and works fine.
Comparing a ktrace on my VMWare installation and one on my real system
shows everything identical up to:
It looks like both of these issues are due to a regression in PAX_ASLR.
Setting that to zero works around these two issues.
