Actually, kern/170066 may be related, but it's different hardware and
in my case, the box does not freeze immediately at wpa_supplicant's
start, though it does freeze eventually, especially if there is some
load on the video subsystem (Intel SandyBridge with the recent
x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel) like watching a movie.
