it looks like you are right and gdb is not my friend. there was nothing 
else on the stack other than the 3 functions gdb listed, but zeroing out 
gd->gd_ipending inside of spl0() got the boot past the previous hang.

The value of gd_ipending was 0x62. Does this mean that interrupts for 
IRQ's 1, 5, and 6 are pending? If so, one of those devices is probably 
causing the interrupt storm, yes?
