Replying to myself in case this is of use to anyone else.

After some tinkering this evening, I had determined that unplugging
all my PATA devices (leaving just the SATA ones, where FreeBSD lives)
allows a normal boot, although this isn't acceptable as I need my DVD

Disabling APIC in the BOIS with the PATA drives plugged in allows
booting. I tried booting with it enabled and telling FreeBSD not to
use ACPI but that didn't help.

Mark Linimon asked me to check to see if my PR was showing up now and
if not resubmit it, so I shall do that too.
