Hey Warner--

All systems go.  I have a fully functional floppy drive now, and no
boot-time hangs.  Device probe output (non-verbose this time):

fdc0: <floppy drive controller> port 0x3f7,0x3f4-0x3f5,0x3f0-0x3f3 irq 6 drq 2 on acpi0
fdc0: [FAST]
fd0: <1440-KB 3.5" drive> on fdc0 drive 0

I was able to format, newfs_msdos, and mount a floppy disk, put a file
on it, and read it back.

Thanks for your help!
