Reboot fails: 5 beeps and a freeze

My issue: Why does FreeBSD 5.3 not reboot? It basically locks up when I
perform a reboot. The same thing happens if I halt and then press any
key to reboot.
Here's sort of what I see on the local terminal (some snips):
cpu_reset called on CPU#0
cpu_reset: Stopping other CPUs
<Stuck Block cursor>
...and that's all I ever see. But while this is being printed to the
screen, I get five beeps. I don't remember that many beeps in FreeBSD 4.x.
BEEP, beep beep beep, BEEP
I don't know how long I've waited for the system to reboot, but so far
it hasn't. The system is a dual-processor Pentium Pro with an APM BIOS
and no ACPI. This machine rebooted fine when it ran FreeBSD 4.7.
Has the code changed for the cpu_reset function recently that would
cause this regression?
