Symptoms

The showdevices -d command on a Sun Fire 12K/15K/E20K/E25K System controller can appear to hang, and takes upwards of 20 minutes to complete depending on the size of the domain. There are no errors returned and the output appears to be complete.

A truss of the dcs daemon on the domain in question shows it is blocking for 60 seconds at a time in door_call().
