 Unfortunately, this breaks shark.  After upgrading my machine to a  
 recent kernel, I can no longer boot from the hard disk; the machine  
 seems to be completely stalled at that point.  I cannot even enter  
 ddb as the PS/2 keyboard does not respond.
 Booting an install kernel is also useless.  After the kernel gives  
 control to userland, the keyboard won't work.  I.e., if I boot with  
 the '-a' option, I can answer the questions the kernel makes, but  
 once sysinst is started I cannot do anything else.
 Reverting this change lets me reinstall shark correctly.
 FWIW, disabling 'file-system NFS' from the kernel has this same  
 effect, hence why I'm appending this to the port-shark/22355 PR.
 Any idea about what happens?
 Thank you,
