Is this one of the problems you refer to?
kernel: (cd0:ata1:0:0:0): Media region code is mismatched to logical
 unit region
Followed by:
kernel: (cd0:ata1:0:0:0): Retries Exhausted
kernel: ata1: FAILURE - non aligned DMA transfer attempted
kernel: unknown: setting up DMA failed

handbrake becomes unkillable, machine can only be rebooted by power cycle. I'm 
interested in this port cause I'm looking for a solid alternative for the 
fragile multimedia/transcode. If this is one of the problems you're seeing and 
not something local to my test machine, I'll see what I can do and follow up 
through PR's.
