Of cource, I know it. So, I cannot send PR.

Unfortunately, I cannot do any operation when system froze.
CTRL-ALT-ESC has no effect, and sending break signal from serial
console ditto.

When system froze, the keyboard connected to the pc98 is useless, in
other word, offline. No LEDs turn on or off when pressing CAPS or
KANA. So, CTRL-ALT-ESC is meaningless. And, on serial console which is
cu on the next FreeBSD/i386 5.4-STABLE, pressing "~#" gets no response.

In addition, there are no messages about the problem in

What I can know is "system freezes". This is very difficult to solve
or report.

But I have the luck that X still works fine if I run it ONCE.

OK, I'll try to press CTRL-ALT-ESC just before the system freezes next
time. If possible.

Because I removed them before system freeze. I agree that is unrelated
to the problem.
