Well, it seems nobody has any idea whats causing this. AFAIU the native

I currently lack the time to look into this, and I probably also lack
the knowledge to properly analyze and fix it.

Btw, the fixes for SBI Unibus are in -current and 5.0_BETA, it would be
nice to know if they work as expected on the 8650.
