I found posts about this and a possible solution is to disable APIC by 
adding hint.apic.0.disabled=1 to /boot/loader.conf. But after doing so, 
it booted to the mountroot prompt and would not recognize my 
ufs:/dev/da0s1a partition when tried. I went to FixIt and removed the 
line from the loader.conf file and it boots fine. I do have some other 
things to help the pgsql db on this server in the loader.conf file, are 
they interfering?

pgsql# cat /boot/loader.conf

The only way I'm able to keep the clock up to date is to sync with an 
Internet time server regularly. Anyone have an idea how fix this issue?
