Well, I don't think that ttyv0 would be the problem in this case. 
See, the machine just hangs with a fatal trap immediately after the
boot loader attempts to boot the kernel.  The whole thread with ttyv0
seems to be an issue only when /etc/rc.conf is read.  So, basically
the page fault is occuring way at the beginning of the boot process
long before the console driver is even loaded. 8-(
