I'm running RELEASE-7.2 and found the same problem of lost keystrokes.
It seems to be motherboard issue. After replacing a motherboard with the current
type this problem occurred.
It's a VIA C3-2 system with a VIA EPIA MII motherboard and a PS2 keyboard
connected with a console switch using the GENERIC kernel with loaded
geom_eli and geom_mirror modules.
Loading padlock makes no difference.
The crypted root filesystem is inside a geom mirror. The system boots from
a CF connected to an IDE port.
Adding kern.geom.eli.visible_passphrase is not a solution because this
makes the passphrase visible in the logs.
After falling through the passphrase questions you reach the failsafe
mountpoint dialog still inside the kernel. Here the keyboard works without any
Outside the kernel in userspace after boot there are also no problems with
mirror/stms1a.eli was created with geli init -b.
