Yes. That's correct.

No, I cannot enter the debugger. The only thing that seems to work is
scrolling. I'm using "kernel.debug".

That's what I get, but it does not differ much from the working version:
GEOM_ELI: Tasting ad0s3g.
Enter passphrase for ad0s2g: g_post_event_x(0xc06126ac,0xc47a8900,2,0)
cd0 at ata1 bus 0 target 0 lun 0
cd0: <HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4240N 02111> Removable CD-ROM SCSI-0 device
cd0: 33.000MB/s transfers
cd0: cd present [38919x2048 byte records]
And after detecting the DVD-ROM, geom_eli waits as usually, but I
cannot enter the password. Maybe the keyboard is just blocked?
That might explain why I cannot enter the debugger.
