Does it make sense to remove syscons from GENERIC? I mean, it's annoying
to have to hook up a serial console when you have a monitor and keyboard
right in front of you, but if syscons is going to cause panics that make
a normal install of FreeBSD impossible then we're actually better off.

I don't expect that someone will actually fix the panics, but that would
otherwise be better of course.
