Well, I don't know.  I've played a bit more with this: turns out that
"ATA controllers" block has nothing to do with it, but when I disable
scbus and depending stuff, it gets past the "IPsec: Initialized Security
Association Processing." message and trying to mount root off CD (which
fails for obvious reasons).

Disabling "device cd" alone is not enough, FWIW.  Since Marius mentioned
earlier that is might be CMD646 vs. CMD646U emulation, I thought that
commenting out "device cd" could give us a data point, but unfortunately
not: looks like something is wrong with entire SCSI bus.
