mounting devfs at boot hangs on Lenovo T60p
I downloaded the dfly-i386-3.6.1_REL.img and copied to a USB flash drive. It appears to boot my IBM/Lenovo T60p until this message appears:
Then it hangs. If I press the power button it gracefully shuts down, but it won't proceed.
Attached is the dmesg from OpenBSD 5.5-current which I'm currently running

I think this relates somehow to the fact that I have a SSD installed in the Ultrabay slot instead of the CD/DVD drive.
When I eject the disk it continues. Once the login prompt appears it hangs again until I put the drive adaptor back in
Also tried 3.6.2/x86_64 this an another T60p what has the T7200 processor. Booting from USB or the CD it hangs at "mounting devfs"
Also tried 3.0.3 with the same result.
What does it say when you send it SIGINFO (hit CTRL-T) while it is hanging after "mounting devfs"?
FWIW I have dfly running on a T410s with SSD in the ultrabay without issues.

in your /etc/rc.conf for a detailed view of what's starting up. Make that output available somewhere, if you can't find yourself where it is hanging.
Can I set this option at the boot loader? (I'm booting off of the USB install image)

It has to be set in /etc/rc.conf. The USB image is r/w so if you get it to
the login prompt somehow, you can login as root and just normally edit
/etc/rc.conf to add it.
I was able to boot from USB on a Dell laptop and edit /etc/rc.conf. Now when I boot it on my T60 it hangs at the same place with no additional output that I can see.

Would it be possible that you tried it again on latest master?

Unfortunately, no. The last i386 release appears to be 3.8.2, and the Intel T2600 I have doesn't support a 64-bit OS.
I have a Lenovo T60 and exactly the same issue on version 4.0.3.
I can confirm the behaviour "When I eject the disk it continues […] it hangs again until I put the drive adaptor back in":
I have a DVD drive in my ultrabay slot. Whenever I eject it the system booting continues (for a short while) after inserting the drive back, then hangs again. I can keep the system running by plugging the drive in and out, and it will always go a bit further.
