There were some changes to ACPI at about that time which caused 
motherboards with buggy BIOSes to have problems.  These were fixed, at 
least for me, pretty quickly.  See the freebsd-acpi mailing list for more 
details, but I'd suggest updating your kernel/world to something in March.

I am running 5.3-STABLE on a Supermicro P6DGH (nice board, but really 
weird - I20, many PCI slots, etc) and a Toshiba 8100 Tecra; the Tecra 
wouldn't boot at all while this problem existed.
