adding ahci to the MODULES line in mkinitcpio.conf and rebuilding the initramfs 
made no difference. The box still freezes on boot at the very beginning of the 
boot process with:

   Booting 'Arch Linux on Archangel'

   root (hd1,5)
Filesystem Type ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel /vmlinuz26 root=/dev/mapper/nvidia_baaccajap5 ro debug
[Linux-BzImage, setup=0x3200, size=0x1ff440]

showing on the screen. The box sits like that for 30-60 seconds and then 
automagically reboots. Booting back into LTS works fine. I guess we need to open 
a report on this one....
