While fixing that issue would be the best option, I was trying a "right now" option.  I'm not sure how to build a kernel, and release.iso (or the like) without CAM.  I've been trying numerous things with modified versions of GENERIC, but am not sure I've gotten anything working the way I want it to.

Err, right, ATA_CAM broke ATA_NO_48BIT_DMA. The simplest workaround
likely is to use a stock GENERIC and set the hw.ata.ata_dma loader
tunable to 0. That will globally disable DMA and not just in cases
where 48-bit DMA is needed but should get you working.
Once you've managed to install FreeBSD, could you please try whether
the following patch fixes that regression?
