I can confirm this part.  A moderately vanilla Gateway machine, when
upgraded this morning, would not respond in single user mode.  It did
respond to ctl+alt+del, I rebooted into normal mode to finish with
installworld and mergemaster.  I tried again rebooting into single user
mode with the same result, no keyboard response save for ctl+alt+del.

(No RAID, no SCSI, just a workstation.  I can post my kernel config if
it will help, but the only things that are even a bit out of the
ordinary are that I have SCHED_ULE and PREEMPTION.)
