OK, i believe the wifi hard hangs are fixed.  i found the problem and have commited workarounds.  the latest builds on armbsd.org for -current include these fixes.  (now it doesn't hard-hang, i will look at porting the driver parts to netbsd-9.)

the wifi can still fail, but the system remains responsive and available and often can recover by itself, or with "ifconfig bwfm0 down up".  sometimes neither works and reboot is required.

well, with all this positivity, I thought I should give another try
Maybe it's me, neither worked (9, current) armbsd.org/arm
9 just didn't boot, black screen, green light
current, I'm still cursing, always black screen, green light for 10s, out, capslk and numlk flash 1s
Then needs extra long press to revive pbp (20+s press pwr button)
(pbp appears dead, only led is red chg led, no green led, nothing happens)
Tried twice, wasn't sure of caps, num flash
Damn glad I know about extra long press
(emmc mrfixit, updated mrfixit uboot))

that's not good!  do you have uart?  i can't think
of any way to figure this out without that..

i would probably test with emmc disabled and use
just an sdcard.

I think this is u-boot related and it has nothing to do with NetBSD. If you're flashing NetBSD on sdcard, I would try flashing on eMMC a more recent u-boot such us this one https://github.com/pcm720/u-boot-build-s...v2020.07-1

Or disabling eMMC as mrgtwentythree already suggested.
