for those reading this later on that are confused like i was, this is
just to say add "-c" to the end of the "module" line in the appropriate
unfortunately, all disabling uhci did was push the freeze back:
piixide1 at pci0 dev 31 function 2
piixide1: Intel 82801G/GR Serial ATA/Raid Controller (ICH7) (rev. 0x01)
piixide1: bus-master DMA support present
piixide1: primary channel configured to native-PCI mode
i should note that the way I have determined it is hung is that 1) it
obviously doesn't progress any further in the boot process and 2) the
keyboard interrupts are no longer detected - capslock and numlock no
longer cause the keyboard lights to change.

no, this is not something I would do. well, i hope not.
Besides, I have also tried booting with a new XEN3_DOM0 kernel from
ftp.netbsd.org's most recent daily build, and had the same problem. In
fact, this most recent hang at piixide1 is using
gunzipped, of course.
