Boot delay, probably caused by fdc

just for the record, I'm seeing a newly introduced delay of several
minutes when booting an SMP machine (HP DL380 G3) on -CURRENT. The boot
process pauses right at this point:
SMP: AP CPU #3 Launched!
SMP: AP CPU #1 Launched!
SMP: AP CPU #2 Launched!
... several minutes nothing. Then the boot process resumes normally:
Trying to mount root from .....
Booting verbosely and setting kern.geom.debugflags at the loader prompt
reveals that during this break the GEOM taste process for the (empty) fd0
floppy device happens.
Disabling the floppy controller in the BIOS makes the boot delay go away.
