I know whats causing this here, and am fixing it as we speak :)

Its an issue with loading snd_driver, and it locking the system. If you 
edit /etc/rc.conf and disable snd_detect, that'll let you get around 
this error for now.

What I need from you, is to figure out which real snd_* driver is used 
for your card, probably snd_hda or snd_ich. If you kldload one of those, 
and it works, then send me the output of "pciconf -l | grep pcm" and 
I'll get it put into the xml file.

There is a bug in freebsd where when you load snd_driver, it causes a 
hard-lock on some systems, it happens on one of mine here as well. I'm 
fixing the snd_detect program to not load snd_driver anymore.
