I did both steps. However... deadlock after either doing the SIGHUP on 
PID 1 or doing a reboot. deadlock appears than right after the boot is 
Well... it may have something todo with what I found now in dmesg:
sio0: configured irq 4 not in bitmap of probed irqs 0
sio0: port may not be enabled
sio0 at port 0x3f8-0x3ff irq 4 flags 0x10 on isa0
sio0: type 8250 or not responding

([mhettwer at ares] <~>)$ ls /dev/ttyd*
([mhettwer at ares] <~>)$ ls /dev/cua*
/dev/cuaa0      /dev/cuaia0     /dev/cuala0

([mhettwer at ares] <~>)$ ls /dev/sio*
ls: /dev/sio*: No such file or directory

hmm... something's strange...
