I just tried booting 6.0-BETA2 on a Tyan Thunder K8WE, to no success.
Even with the on-board SCSI disabled, the system hangs after probing mpt0:
it does the SCSI device settle delay, picks up the SATA drives, then
hangs. Under a 'boot -v', I get a whole bunch of cruft about detecting
devices on mpt0. The system fully freezes after it's done, though, so I
can't really pull much data from the dmesg.
I've tried booting with and without SCSI enabled, to the same effect. I
haven't yet tried booting without ACPI, as the last time I tried that, the
system didn't pick up any drives at all.
 Which, strangely, happens before the SATA detection. In 5.3, the settle
delay definitely happens after the SATA detection.
