Just not sure where to go with this one.
Could you show the output of: ps axlwww when things are hanging? I'm particularly interested in the WCHAN entries for hung processes and kernel threads. That entry is the wait channel for kernel thread sleeps, which should give us some sense of what they're waiting for. If it's a UFS bug of some sort, you'll likely see a lot of processes blocked in "inode" -- this could also happen in a hardware scenario, but should still be useful. In addition, do you have the entire serial console log output since boot? It would be interesting to know if you've had kernel log messages regarding your hard disk controller, etc. This might help distinguish a hardware problem from a software problem.
