The hardware is not broken. I refer to my board as broken because no
one else seems to be having issues running modern NetBSD. NetBSD does
not boot all the way to the sh prompt without my changes. I am trying
to get a newer version than the 7.99.x that I tried years ago. This is
the closest I have come to a working modern version.

The other workaround (unacceptable to me) is to comment out all the
USB support, including ehci and ohci, in the CI20 config file.
