or if some special classes like md and atapi-cd are used that have no
taster function. I send some more information to phk this very early
The problem seens to be that none of the classes has a goem entry when
going through g_valid_obj().

Another thing that crossed my mind while going to work this morning is
that the only related reports I had seen are when mounting rootfs.
[ also see 5103.1068811352 at za.uu.net , this month in current ]
What about the atapi-cd case ?

 From the debugging this night I remember that there are some XXX
comments in geom_dev about this. Just another thing one might keep in
mind while further debugging.
