I am not, and never have on this machine, used the serial console.  As a
further point of information, my machine works just fine under a non-MI
SCSI 1.4S kernel (well, except for the fact that the keyboard and mouse
don't work by the time you get to "Enter pathname of shell ...").

This is a good idea - I'll try building a GENERIC MI SCSI kernel ...

I think this conjecture may be correct; the SCSI autoconfiguration sets up
the xasc? devices and then defers configuration of the "children" until
after interrupts are enabled.

But the system never gets around to calling scsibus_config_interrupts() ...
