How soon is "soon"?  I may be able to send you some
hardware too if that would be helpful.  

I tried a -CURRENT kernel today but didn't
build/install world or anything else as I don't want
to mess up this machines 5.4 installation.  The result
was that it now seems to identify all the atapici0 -
atapici3 controllers and doesn't do the repeated
DISCONNECTED/CONNECTED messages but it still panicked
near the end of the bootup process, around the USB

I called a friend today who has a spare SATA drive I
can borrow so I'll be picking that up tomorrow and
I'll swap out drives and do a fresh -CURRENT install
tomorrow on that new drive to see if I can get it any
further along towards a successful boot.  I'll report
back with my findings.

Thanks for the help!
