FreeBSD video console (vidconsole) on the Raspberry Pi

In the default configuration with FreeBSD on the Raspberry console messages are written on the serial console.

After a "shutdown now" one cannot enter commands from a connected USB keyboard.

I tried to enable the video console but adding

console="vidconsole" 

to /boot/loader.conf just results in an error message from the bootloader.

Adding:

kern.console="ttyv0"

to /etc/sysctl.conf does the trick!

Note that one still cannot enter input for the bootloader in the early boot stages. I have not found a solution for that issue (probably needs different options for UBLDR), you will have to use a serial console for now.
