     Is anyone aware if this issue is fixed in FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE / STABLE?

I've been trying to get FreeBSD-7 amd64 installed on an HP dc7700p workstation
at work, but the installation CDs always fail with the error: panic: No BIOS
smap info from loader.

My case appear exactly as is referenced in the above PR filing, but various
google searches of other people's experiences revealed this problem still
happening as of this week - that is, after the release of 7.0.

Does anyone have any idea as to where this is heading, or if there's a call out
for users to submit more information, or volounteer to test suggested
