	You have the ability to specify the bus address in 4.x, I
    believe. There should be examples of it in GENREIC.

	I am not sure, but is ROOTDEVICE still required in 4.x? 
    If you have that specified, you can either try to change it to
    da2s1a, or comment it out and see if the kernel still compiles,
    and boots as expected once the controllers are identified.
