 OK, this thread is likely a problem:

 - scsipi_completion_thread()
        This asynchronous completion thread handles the event, which is
        in this case attaching of a new device.  Callbacks are performed
        under splbio().
 -- [skipping] .. sdopen()
        Acquiring sd->sc_dk.dk_openlock here.  We are still at IPL_BIO.
 --- [skipping] .. read_sector() -> disk_read_sectors()
        Invoking sdstrategy() and entering biowait().  However, since
        we are still at IPL_BIO, biodone() does not happen - thread has
        deadlocked against interrupt with sd->sc_dk.dk_openlock held.

 This thread merely tries to acquire sd->sc_dk.dk_openlock and waits in
 the turnstile for deadlocked scsipi_completion_thread().
 Fix: rework code to remove top-level splbio() in scsipi_completion_thread().
 Long term fix: make scsipi subsystem MP-safe.
