I tried the 7.0-release-amd64 200807 snapshot and it booted (after holding
the spacebar @ /boot/loader.conf). It stopped at Trying to mount root from
ufs:/dev/md0". I waited about 30-45 minutes and it didn't continue from that
point -- the keyboard was also unresponsive.

Does anyone know if this is a known issue?
