My netwinder often hangs very early in the boot process even during
serial console boot (but works ok afterwards), so when I was writing
the wscons support it was hard to tell if a hang was due to a bug in a
driver, or just some "random" hang.  If there's really a bug - someone
with a stable machine should debug it.  As a palliative, try to power
cycle the machine. :)

Also, try booting 2.0 with serial console and see if igsfb0 attaches.
Mine attaches as:

igsfb0 at pci0 dev 8 function 0: Integraphics Systems CyberPro 2000 (rev. 0x01)
igsfb0: 4MB, hardware bswap, 1024x768, 8bpp

With serial console - send a BREAK (~%break with cu(1), ~# with tip(1)).
