I managed to recover and am running 7-CURRENT now.
The morale of the story is
1.disable fancy drivers and scripts for binary compatibilites before 
2. Prepare a backup
4. use unload all when building and after rebooting with the new kernel. 
Use GENERIC at first, then your kernel. Backup 2-3 good kernels.
5. recompile ports with the new system.
6. Don't diddle with the upgrade process - let it run

Have a good one!
