Single user mode keyboard garbage and unexpected softupdate inconsistency
Ive been encountering a strange bug. When I get to single user mode and
when it asks about hitting enter to choose /bin/sh as shell, upon
hitting enter i get garbage on the screen, this is not just the enter
key but all keys including Esc produce different garbage making the
single user mode utterly useless.
My keyboard is:
ukbd0: Logitech USB Receiver, rev 1.10/30.07, addr 3, iclass 3/1
kbd1 at ukbd0
Another problem ive been encountering is how often unexpected softupdate
inconsistency happens. For some reason it always happens on /tmp (1gb
large) during the "pull-the-plug" test. all other have consistent

I have a vague memory of the system having to do some sort of translation
or put the keyboard into some sort of translation mode in order for it
to work properly.
At some point in the past we had a similar 'garbage from USB keyboards'
issue and I remember it being resolved, but I don't remember exactly what
the issue turnde out to be. This sounds like the same thing.
