Well I ran cvsup prior to doing this, so it's not a perfect test case 
(i.e. it's not the src that the 6.2-RC1 CD installed).  But after 
building and installing a new world and GENERIC kernel from a cvsup on 
RELENG_6_2 from yesterday, the box boots fine and detects the em card 
properly during boot without freezing. 

I can test future 6.2 RC's or the final release and let you know if I'm 
still seeing the same issue if you'd like. 

Thanks for your help!
