Your problem may be fixed in the 6.0-CURRENT ata driver.  Try the following:

cd /usr/src/sys/dev/ata
cvs [-d <your CVSROOT>] update -PAd -r HEAD
cd /usr/src
make buildkernel
make installkernel

reboot the system and see if you still have the boot hang.

The 6.0-CURRENT ata driver fixes my crash on boot problem (after a reboot).
