 Well FWIW, yes, this patch does seem to move things along a little for 
 my R3000Z - it now boots, but gets stuck further down the line with:
 ata0-master: setting PIO4 on nVidia nForce3 chip
 ata0-master: setting UDMA100 on nVidia nForce3 chip
 ad0: <TOSHIBA MK8026GAX/PA002G> ATA-6 disk at ata0-master
 [more ad0 identifying info]
 GEOM: new disk ad0
 ata1-master: setting PIO4 on nVidia nForce3 chip
 acd0: <SD-R2512/1A04> CDRW drive at ata1 as master
 [mode acd0 identifying info]
 [fdisk table]
 GEOM: Configure ad0s1, start 32256 length 62915134454 end 62915166719
 GEOM: Configure ad0s2, start 62915166720 length 17108582400 end 80023749119
 At this point, the machine freezes solid.
 Now, this could be down to the way I built the miniinst (essentially by 
 hand-stepping through make release on an x86->amd64 cross-compile -- my 
 other amd64-based box is completely shot thanks to the local power 
 company) -- I'd need a native amd64-built miniinst to confirm.
