	Well, it booted correctly in SMP mode for the first time tonight. Yay! :-)

	I am still not sure why it wasn't working in SMP mode. FreeBSD 4.11 worked 
like a champ in both UP and SMP modes. I tried diffing the ATA code between 
FreeBSD 4.8, FreeBSD 4.11, and DragonFly, but I found no changes that seemed 
to relate to my problem. 

	Then I found the following post to the commits@ list:
Since it seems to be the only related commit since the beginning of January, 
it probably has some relation. The "system locks up due to e.g. blown 
interrupt routing" comment in the log sounds about right. So, I am guessing 
this is probably the cause of my problem.

	Thanks Matt!
