I don't have access to the console of the box. They are switching to a
different type of SATA controller. I'm hoping this will fix the problem.
If not, can this be done from loader.conf?
Also, are these warning messages causing data corruption/loss at all, or
are they just indicative of retries that are effectively inefficient? In
other words, if swapping to a new controller has a positive outcome (no
more error messages), should I force an OS reload anyway?
