The better way to change si_options for a single kernel run is to
boot the kernel with the "-d" flag: (so it will stop in ddb)
	b le()netbsd -ds
When you get the "db>" prompt, say:
	db> w si_options 0
or whatever you want, then "continue" to let it go on.

The equivalent on a terminal is to send a "line break"
(we need an FAQ soon...)
