Thanks for the reply!  I'm a bit late coming back with the requested 
information, it's taken a while when I've had a day free to test various 
configs (and, I admit, to be able to psych myself up to it--my system is 
not the speediest or most convenient to reboot!)

I've attached the dmesg, its config ("TEAPOT") and loader.conf files; 
apologies in advance for the slightly obtuse configuration layout, one of 
those "it seemed like a good idea at the time" efforts.

As for the versions of the kernel, I've narrowed it down to a half-day 
window, which is hopefully useful: the cvsup-specified dates I have are
2009. (working) and 2009. (not working).

If anybody has any ideas what to do next...  I'd /almost/ prefer to hear 
it was a configuration gaffe on my part (and I've already spotted a 
surplus nvram entry while writing this), even if it does mean no small 
amount of embarrassment.
