just picking a random email to reply to, I'm seeing a different issue with 
early AP startup. It affects one of my four machines, my laptop. My three 
server systems downstairs have no problem however my laptop will reboot 
repeatedly at:

Jan 17 11:55:16 slippy kernel: cd0: Attempt to query device size failed: 
NOT READY, Medium not present - tray closed

Then finally boot after a number of reboots (0-N), it finally boots. 
Disabling early AP start allows it to boot past that point first time.
