I'm a little confused by the kernel output. It appears as if you're
using the new SATA-to-CAM layer (ahci.ko) for your SATA disks, rather
than the ataahci.ko layer... but I don't see any indication of AHCI
being available/used on your southbridge chipset.
Possibly this is the source of the problem (specifically, it looks like
FreeBSD doesn't have proper device ID knowledge of what this controller
is. I believe that's because this system is *very* new, a Core i3/i5/i7
If you disable use of ahci.ko and use the standard ata(4) layer, does
the interrupt storm go away?
