 does it still have the cpu failure attach messages in early boot?
 here's a simple way to see if i'm right about config_pending not
 being reduced at this point:
 in config_finalize() there is this loop:
 	while (config_pending != 0)
 		cv_wait(&config_misc_cv, &config_misc_lock);
 if you convert it to a cv_timedwait() that sleeps for hz (or
 even hz*2 or hz*5) and then prints config_pending, eg:
 	while (config_pending != 0) {
 		cv_timedwait(&config_misc_cv, &config_misc_lock, hz);
 		printf("%s: config_pending still %d\n", __func__,
 (untested/compiled).  this would at least give us any idea on
 where to look next.
