OK, good news and bad news:

Good News:

  I've installed the latest firmware for the Compaq DS10 and it seemed to
take care of the USB-related kernel problems.  I got it from here:

I installed it using the BOOTP method described in the webpage cited
above. This took the SRM firmware on the machine ("sarasvati") from 5.7 to
6.2.  I did this after reading the following on the FreeBSD 4.6 Alpha
hardware notes:

  The USB ports are not supported and are disabled by the SRM console in
   all recent SRM versions.

This is the FreeBSD document where the above is written:

If the latest version of SRM defaults to disabling built-in USB, it
suggests that they are non-functional.

 After the firmware upgrade, the generic NetBSD 1.5.3 kernel booted
without any problems. It did not report the existence of any USB devices
or buses.  Sarasvati (the DS10 in question) came up multi-user, no problem.

Bad News:

 sarasvati still panics when attempting to build a new kernel on an
NFS-mounted file system.

So, i then attempted to get a little more info about the panic.

1) ftp'd syssrc.tgz to sarasvati, put it on local disk, and compiled a
GENERIC kernel with symbols. (The Only change to the config was
uncommenting 'makeoptions DEBUG="-g"'.)

2) config'd, built, installed new kernel and rebooted.  (Gotta love that
Alpha speed!)

3) NFS mounted kernel source.  config'ing a new kernel configuration file
 ran to completion, then ran "make depend."

4) Panic arrived when doing the "make".

Crash and boot verbage attached below for the curious. This panic still
seems to be associated with NFS, but different than the previous. I'm
using the built-in Ethernet interfaces in the machine.

  Juergen Weiss said he has seen this problem with pc164 board and nfs,
and maybe be related to the Tulip. Should i open a new PR about this?  Is
there anything else i can get out of the kernel debugger? The crash is
