As for this part: Are you *really* sure that the files were what you
believed them to be? The first appears to me to be a kernel config file
instead of the device.hints. I have no idea about the second, it could
be any file with a $FreeBSD$ tag in it, which was not commented properly
or something.

BTW: I looked over the suggested order of steps in UPDATING just now, you
did things pretty much according to that (with the exception of the "-j"
for the buildworld but that one cannot be that dramatic, I assume you
did not use the "-j" for the installworld.

So, I still have no real explanation for your hanging of the machine.
Perhaps someone else. The first failure is memory corruption in any
event but the reason is not known to me. I have not seen it reported
here yet.
