I think all interrupts are disabled on ddb prompt.

I'm not sure how this should be handled, but
I guess you have to prepare special cnputc() function
(which will be enabled by cnpoll()) that kicks DMA transfer
manually to upload framebuffer on each character output.

If gsfb_init() is called in gsfbcninit(), maybe gsfb_attach() doesn't
have to call gsfb_init() again.
(see sys/dev/tc/sfb.c and sys/arch/dreamcast/dev/pvr.c etc.)
