I'm preparing something for an exposition on some Vintage Computer Event
and connected an old original VT102 to my netbook running CURRENT. See
here: http://www.unixarea.de/freebsd-vt102.jpg
The system is r276659 on i386.

The VT102 is connected through an USB-serial adapter and getty spawns
nicely login: to /dev/cuaU0. Login works as well, but only with /bin/csh
as login-shell, not with /bin/sh. After some digging, I figured out that
the real problem is the hanging open(2) syscall on /dev/tty: no proc
can't open this file after login through /dev/cuaU0.. More details in
the issue in bugzilla:


What part of the kernel should I instrument with more debugging log to
get light into this problem? Any other ideas?
