The problem occurs well after the kernel is up and running.  The last
messages that were readable were from ugen/uhub and ada0.  The rest was
garbled and the system froze solid something after that.  I tried
pinging it but it wasn't reachable so this wasn't a case where the
console was trashed but system was running.

This is amd64 built with clang.  I have dual consoles - serial and VGA.
