No doubt.

What I'm really curious about is whether I'm the only one seeing this
consistently- not the 1-3,5 above, but #4- where as soon as /sbin/init is
invoked, the serial console has this repeated output that makes it unusable,
period. I really don't want to debug this myself- I am *sooooooo* behind on
other FreeBSD issues that I need to spend what few FreeBSD cycles I have on
