In case it helps at all, pluto2 (ia64 reference machine on the cluster)
might be doing the same thing.  For a kernel built Jan 22nd it
wedges right after the timecounter messages.  For a kernel built
Jan 20th it seems to boot fine.  The messages immediately after the
timecounter messages for a successful boot are the ATA-attached DVD
