Description glenn 2003-03-25 23:20:10 UTC
	The loader(8) program sends cursor control commands to the console at
	boot time.  Systems that use serial consoles don't necessarily provide
	support for those (fixed) control sequences.  This can create really
	annoying problems, possibly locking up some terminals.

	The loader sources provide a compile-time #ifdef option (TERM_EMU)
	that enables this functionality, which is always enabled in the

Fix: Make the TERM_EMU option selectable in the Makefile.

This is a diff on /usr/src/sys/boot/i386/libi386/Makefile.

The same patch applies to /usr/src/sys/boot/pc98/libpc98/Makefile, but
I have no way to test that.
