Apply the following patch (it's against 1.4-something, so the line numbers
won't match, but the patch is the same) and then see if you can boot up and
get a dmesg.  This will let us see more of what's going on.

Do you, by any chance, have an OPL3-SA3 sound system (aka ym0)?  I've had
troubles with the ym0 at isapnp attach routine scrambling later isapnp cards.
