because it makes certain assumptions about console (i.e. syscons(4)) 
driver. anyway, the link i posted in previous email contains a patch 
that should fix problems with kbdmux(4) and atkbd(4) not working in 
ddb(4), mid-boot (rootfs prompt, geli prompt, etc).

so far i only got one (successful) report. would people please give it a 
try to see if work, so i can commit it.
