FreeBSD 6.x SMP amd64 hang on dual Xeon after "shutdown -r"

On systems without PS/2 keyboard controllers, after issuing a "shutdown
-r", the system winds down to this point:
Shutting down ACPI
cpu_reset: stopping other CPUs
and it no longer responds to the keyboard - only reset or power cycling
will bring it out of this state. Does the Opteron or EMT64-enabled Xeon
not reboot on a triple fault like i386 CPUs do? (A triple fault is what
umapping all the virtual memory causes, doesn't it?)
