I think it is:

wskbd0 at mkbd0 (mux ignored): console keyboard
pvr0 at shb0: 640 x 480, 16bpp, NTSC, composite
wsdisplay0 at pvr0 (kbdmux ignored): console (80x30,vt100 emulation), using wskbd0

you see that wsdisplay0 on pvr0 thats wsdisplay attaching up...there is 
pvr code in there.

Are you going for a Xserver..?
