Some changes regarding console selection were commited last weekend
(Creator cards using syscons(4) and uart(4) now should behave as
expected when "keyboard" and "screen" are selected for input-device
resp. output-device in the OpenFirmware but the keyboard is unplugged).
However, if you don't get the firmware output at boot up on any of
the potential console devices all I can think of is unfortunately a
hardware problem, too.
