How do I turn off "preemption" (getting "TIMEOUT - WRITE_DMA")

I am getting "TIMEOUT - WRITE_DMA" messages on my ad2 and ad3
hard-drives. I never get them on ad0 or the CD drive. I did some
searching, and it sounds like I need to turn of "preemption" in the
kernel. I'm running 5.3-BETA4 on the computer.
I am going to guess this is turned on for the beta-testing.
Any ideas? I just started running 5.x last night. %-)
