This is too few information. Mainly, you need to tell *what* has been
working, and *what not*. Quote boot messages, etc.
Also, until you know that this is really a bug in FreeBSD (or can at
least support your suspicion of a bug with some data), this should not
go into a PR. Use the mailing list email@example.com, or
the Usenet group comp.unix.bsd.freebsd.misc instead.
