I've got two of them.

1. hack all the ports not using wscons to have something like
	defopt wsdisplay.h NWSDISPLAY
   in the conf/files.$ARCH
2. avoid the problem by backing-up my last Debugger() changes,
	since they are mostly useless as they
	are now. It's possible to freely switch between textual wscons
	screens even when you are in DDB (doing it automatically
	is just unnecessary bloat) and the code currently fails to
	switch to console from graphical screen anyway.

I'd probably vote for the latter, unless I find some good way
to switch away of graphical screen. We may possibly keep the MD
specific DDB entry function as cpu_Debugger() and either update
the callers to use cpu_Debugger() instead of Debugger() or
provide appropriate define in <systm.h> (the latter is probably

Opinions ?
