The keyboard usually works on the boot menu as the bios is in control.
So, exit the menu to load the kernel modules you need, usb, ukbd and
uhid I think should do. Then boot into single user mode.

For next time, this happens, I suggest you build a kernel with usb
keyboard support built in. I think the GENERIC kernel now supports usb
keyboards by default, which explains why the boot option has been removed.

I just booted and installed with the "boot with usb keyboard" option in 5.4,
and it's worked ever since. I'm not sure why. I suppose that I should find out
in case it breaks.

AFAIK the usb keyboard menu was a 5.x thing, since then usb keyboards have become so common that usb keyboard support is included in the GENERIC kernel. The OP refered to 6.1.

If you don't want to include support in the kernel, just make sure to load the modules at boot, check loader.conf. If you installed the "with usb keyboard" then this might have been set for you.

Cheers, Erik
