As far as I know, the GDT8514RZ is a RAID controller from ICP -- I think it
uses the iir driver.

I saw that some other people had freezing problems with it with FreeBSD/i386
when using RAID 4 or RAID 5, so this may have nothing to do with amd64.

My web search also indicated that beta controller firmware from ICP may fix
this issue.
