I was getting only these errors after some time, first time it was
when the box had 10days uptime and than about 3, but from these
freezes I haven't any logs, all what I have is, I added to
/boot/loader.conf line 'hw.ata.ata_dma=0' and to the /etc/rc.local
line 'atacontrol mode 0 udma2 udma2' so I'm waiting now, if the freeze
come back...
