I tried -current on the 08/03/15 and there has only been one commit since then - but not sure if that's related?

Yea, the description of the commit didn't look firmware-related. But I now tried the latest amd64 snapshot on the laptop anyway,

Code:
OpenBSD 5.8-beta (GENERIC.MP) #1126: Sun Jul  5 18:43:48 MDT 2015
and also still get

Code:

Let Stefan know if this fixes your problem.

Thanks for the pointer ibara, I'll be glad to give it a try.

I was just looking at the snapshot kernel in http://ftp.OpenBSD.org/pub/OpenBSD/snapshots/amd64/, dated 09-Jul-2015 06:15, but suspect it's too early to have this change. I should probably wait for the next one?

Also, since this is a boot-time issue, I'm guessing it's *probably* good enough just to grab the updated kernel, and boot it on the snapshot I already have. Is that reasonable?

Well, not so fast.

So at least the problem has been reproduced.

Ahh, that simplifies things.

Actually, IIRC cynwulf had made a similar change up-thread and found it didn't work for him, but it would have been worth a quick try here anyway.

Sadly, yes it seems I tried this. This is where Stefan doubled the wait time:
Code:
error = tsleep(&usc->wait_msg_id, 0, "athnfw", 2 * hz);
In my case I used a 10 second wait. I can't remember if I tried shorter delays before that, but the delay was certainly obvious.
Code:
error = tsleep(&usc->wait_msg_id, 0, "athnfw", hz*10);
(also good to know I was looking in the right place for that - was never sure)

//edit: decided to try anyway, pulled down a diff for 1.33 -> 1.35 and rebuilt the kernel, apart from some more verbosity when the device is plugged in - no change.
