I don't know how could I find, during the shutdown, what are those
unkillable processes. I didn't find anything suspicious in
/var/log/messages. Could init(8) be configured/patched to print/log a list
of such unkillable processes during the shutdown?
There are following PATA devices in this box:
ad0: 14649MB <IBM-DTLA-307015/TX2OA5AA> [29765/16/63] at ata0-master UDMA33
ad1: 3098MB <ST33210A/1.70> [6296/16/63] at ata0-slave UDMA33
ad2: 14324MB <IBM-DTLA-307015/TX2DA5AA> [29104/16/63] at ata1-master UDMA33
acd0: CDROM <SAMSUNG CD-ROM SC-152L/C100> at ata1-slave PIO4
And ACPI is disabled.
In a past ad2 was not physically installed, acd0 was different and I ran
FreeBSD 5.3-RELEASE (lower patchlevel) on ad1. I had experienced the same
shutdown problem with the same low periodicity. I believe it is not an HDD problem.
