Ok, I think I've found the problem.

biodone() relies on cpu_intr_p() to determine whether to shunt to a
softint or plow straight ahead.

The atari cpu_intr_p() tests the "idepth" variable managed by
intr_dispatch() in atari/atari/intr.c. However, several of the
interrupts, including the 5380 one, are hardwired and don't go
anywhere near intr_dispatch().

One then ends up in biodone2() in an interrupt handler, which is not
supposed to happen, and everything goes downhill from there.
