How about turning this into a compile-time or sysctl option
or at least mentioning the change in /usr/src/UPDATING?
With this commit, providing the geli key phrase on
boot is impossible on my AMD64 dual core system.
Not even enabling the "visible characters" option helps
because obviously backspace is broken too.
Before theses locks were introduces I worked around the problem
with this gets() hack (which forced me to reduce the key entropy):
and now I will simply revert your commit locally, but I assume I'm
not the only geli user who prefers to be able to boot the system
without local patches.
