I assume booting verbose doesn't provide any more clues?  I've sometimes
gotten an extra clue from a hang during boot by building with option
BUS_DEBUG.  Even if you don't suspect the newbus routines as directly
being the problem, sometimes you get a bit more info about what was
happening at the time of lockup.
