Default OpenBSD 4.6 i386 boot hangs with old Gateway system - resolved

This problem is resolved I want to document it.

When booting 4.4, 4.5 and a recent 4.6, lots of boot configuration messages appear
and then the process just stops, hangs, freezes...

To fix the problem while booting I do this:

>boot -c
ukc>disable apm

And to "permanently" fix the problem I alter the /bsd boot file like this:

mv /bsd /bsd.old
config -e -o /bsd /bsd.old
ukc>disable apm

Here is the dmesg from a successful boot:
