 It looks like this, the same message is ever time it freeze.

 I did check it. Fortunately keyboard and USB disk were at other controller.
 There was also wm0 at the same interupt, I disabled it as well. So there is
 an interupt assigment after disable uhci and wm:
 ioapic0 at mainbus0 apid 2: pa 0xfec00000, version 20, 24 pins
 ioapic1 at mainbus0 apid 3: pa 0xfecc0000, version 20, 24 pins
 ioapic2 at mainbus0 apid 4: pa 0xfecc0400, version 20, 24 pins
 twa0: interrupting at ioapic0 pin 16
 ehci0: interrupting at ioapic0 pin 18
 ehci1: interrupting at ioapic0 pin 23
 ahcisata0: interrupting at ioapic0 pin 17
 ichsmb0: interrupting at ioapic0 pin 17
 the behavior is still the same, so I guess the issue is not done by
 shared interupts.
 When I did this set of tests I didn't saw anything suspicious at console but 
 "twa0: clearing controller queue error"
 Any idea what else to do ?
                                                Best regards
