Subject:   8.0 dmesg output is mangled

Updating an amd64 box from 7.1 to 8.0.
Console is RS-232.

Check to see if any disk names have changed:
	dmesg | grep ^ad
looks reasonable.

to loader.conf and rebooted

	dmesg | grep siis
gives output that doesn't look right at all:

siis0: <SiI3132 SATA2 controller> port 0x7c00-0x7c7f mem 0xfe6ff000-0xfe6ff07f,0

The Samsung disk is connected to a JMB363 controller, not the SiI 3132.
The SiI 3132 has a Hitachi and a Seagate.

	dmesg | grep ^ada
ada0 at siisch0 bus 0 target 0 lun 0
ada0: <Hitachi HDT721010SLA360 ST6OA31B> ATA/ATAPI-8 SATA 2.x device

This looks reasonable except for a 1 TB and a 1.5 TB drive having
the same number of heads, sectors/track and cylinders.  (not that
those numbers are meaningful with recent disks)

I'm thinking that perhaps the outputs from ata(4) and siis(4) are getting
jumbled together like two processes writing to the same tty?
