 The symptoms are the same, but the latest revision didn't help me.  So
 far, I have only encountered two machines which exhibit the problem and
 I don't dare test on the second one any further as I nearly lost my
 fileserver's RAID from booting a netbsd-9 kernel on it.
 I had a locally-applied patch for additional debugging, but in case
 it was interfering, I've moved it aside.  As soon as I can rebuild
 -current again I'll test again.

 I recently booted netbsd-9 from a live-usb stick on the one affected
 machine on which I can test.  It seems to alternately work, then fail,
 then work, then fail, etc. on each successive reboot.
