I had wondered about a speed mismatch, but everything I've found says
9600.  I did not know to look at kern.consmute.  I'll check that.

Is there any documentation on this sysctl?  I'm not sure what I
should set it to.  After a normal boot, it reads:

kern.console: consolectl,/ttyd1,consolectl,

That is the expected 9600.
