I've finally managed to boot the ich915 machine I'd mentioned previously!

The stopping problem was "interrupt storm on irq15" (as freebsd-5 puts it), 
which I finally noticed in freebsd-5, and which freebsd-5 is able to throttle 
(and dfbsd, seemingly, is not).

Seeing that, I've changed BIOS settings of SATA controller to compatible mode 
and now the machine works!

So, perhaps, some patching-testing-something would be needed, so that dfbsd 
could automatically cope with the kind of situation too?
