Hmm, I did try simply to fsck (booting into single user with the "good"
kernel was still possible this time after 3 or 4 "lost interrupt"
iterations with the pci enabled kernel), but the kernel reports
wd0a: error reading fsbn 816 of 816-831 (wd0 bn 879; cn 0 tn 13 sn 60),
wd0: (uncorrectable data error)
[repeated n times]
for many blocks, making fsck fail in many ways and resulting in
countless corrupted or removed files -- the fsck is still running while
I'm writing this message, but I doubt very much that it will result in
any kind of usable system... ;-/

Funny (?!) enough, it did.

Its a shame that I cant post logs of the failed boot attempt -- maybe I
should have used a digicam to make a "screen shot" (the good ideas
always come to late) but its to late now...
