While trying to boot a GENERIC_MD kernel on my 12" PowerBook G4 DVI, I encounter the following problems:
(1) "wdc0:0:0 lost interrupt" several times
(2) "wdc1:0:0 lost interrupt" several times
(3) when asked for the terminal type, I have no keyboard... whereas console and keyboard appears to be ok from boot messages

The same system boots fine under GNU/Linux Gentoo 1.4 Live CD

The supported models page needs a fix:

It would be nice to add support for the forthcoming 2.0

I have no clue how to fix this but I am ready to help fixing this.

Seems to be the same problem as Problem Report #22317
Take a 12" PowerBook G4 DVI (new generation)
boot hd:9,\netbsd\ofwboot.xcf netbsd\netbsd-GENERIC_MD.gz

that's it...

Rq. the problem remains the same with older snapshots/releases
