In case someone has one of those babies: the SCSI controller that
doesn't like bus rescans is mpt(4). When devd(8) requests a bus
rescan, connection with the disks is lost and if you happen to
have / on one of those disks you can imagine how that affects the
performance of your boot process :-)

Anyone with a bit of mpt(4) foo is welcomed to take a look at this.
