I have the same problem, but it is even more curious:
Using a FreeBSD/amd64 system, sometimes the USB keyboard is probed and
detected before the geli passphrase prompt, so I can enter the
passphrase (~ 1/3 of all boots).
Using a FreeBSD/x86 system, sometimes the USB keyboard is probed before
geli passphrase prompt, but it is never enabled, so I can't enter the
passphrase (and thus not boot the 32bit system).
Both kernels are FreeBSD-7.1 PRERELEASE kernels.
I also tried to call kthread_suspend_check(curproc) in g_eli.c multiple
times, just before the keyboard is requested for the passphrase; but
this didn't help.
Also, I tried to remove the #if 0 from ukbd_configure (dev/usb/ukbd.c),
but this didn't help either.
