If it's the floppy problem, that is where it's likely to hang. There
are now 2 probes, 1`for floppy hardware done where the fdc0 messages are
and 1 done for floppy media by GEOM, right at the end of boot (while
discovering disks). If the first one gets the config wrong, the second
triggers the hang. This was previously hidden by the fact that in the
past, we didn't bother with media in the drive during boot, only when
someone made a mount or read attempt from /dev/fd0 at runtime.
The fix is to get the config right. At the moment, I believe both
RELENG_5 and -current take into account all known settings. It's quite
possible there are other config issues, possibly triggered by
nonstandard hardware (i.e., media line change), that we'll have to
