I've noticed one thing today. I can switch off USB-Keyboard support in
my BIOS. In this case, I cannot use my keyboard during boot prompt, but
FreeBSD at least initializes the USB-controller correctly, so I can use
it later when entering my geli partition password.
It seems the BIOS on some mainboards puts the USB controller in a state
from which FreeBSD cannot initialize the hardware anymore.
And, let's not forget, there is the second problem with devices that
suddenly power off at apparently random times.
