Re: port-alpha/40077: pmf_system_shutdown(9) breaks reboot(8) on PWS500au

  I ran into a similar type of problem on an old Compaq DL360.  It hung
on any attempt to halt, and required a power cycle to clear.  I did track
it down to the 1.113 revision of sys/dev/pci/pci.c, which disables bus master accesses. You might try to comment out the code in pci_child_shutdown() and see if that also makes it work. If I ever get around to getting my PWS500au connected back up, I could also check this, but I'm getting deep into the SMP problem at the moment.
