BETA7 panics for me on 1 out of 3 systems at line 140 in sys/dev/ata-queue.c
with atadev->param NULL.

BETA6 runs fine except for the floppy problem discussed earier.

This is a production server which has only ever run FreeBSD and has always
been reliable. It looks to me as though 5.3-BETA7 is too green to be the basis
of a release candidate. I haven't even had a chance to try bind9 on this
machine due to the boot crash which always sends me back to BETA6.
