I seem to remember similar but think it was fixed. I don't think biowait was occuring in that instance.

Right now BUILD-NetBSD script  is hanging @ i386--netbsdelf-objcopy .
. . biowait, but otherwise the machine is responsive. gdb cannot
attach itself to the pid, though.

I updated an hour ago and tested a build tools on dom0 but same thing occurred. An amd64 domu of the same vintage as the dom0 I just updated completes the same invocation just fine.

Not sure if that indicates anything but at least domus are working fine.
