You haven't deleted all the SCSI related stuff though.  You did remove
the following:

    -# SCSI peripherals
    -device         scbus           # SCSI bus (required)
    -device         da              # Direct Access (disks)

But not this:

     device         ncv             # NCR 53C500
     device         nsp             # Workbit Ninja SCSI-3
     device         stg             # TMC 18C30/18C50

You also have umass around, which requires SCSI support:

     device         umass           # Disks/Mass storage - Requires scbus and da

But the comment states that scbus is *required* for umass.
