yes, I can build and install kernel with patch.
On reboot, the booting information is no longer
shown on serial console, just:

Booting [/boot/kernel/kernel]...               
Entering /boot/kernel/kernel at 0x9ffc000000010500...

FreeBSD/ia64 (mech-as221.men.bris.ac.uk) (ttyu1)


This is probably the default vt behaviour?
I need to be able to see thing progressing
in the serial console. How can I do this?
Or do I need to disable vt for this?

Anyway, I can find neither vt nor vt_vga
man pages on r260914 system. Is this expected?

Many thanks
