IIRC there might be a race condition between brltty writing its pid and
the framebuffer being disabled. We'll probably have to sort that out.

A framebuffer console works, yes, but a framebuffer running bogl-bterm
doesn't, because in that case that's bogl-bterm that handles everything,
and it doesn't expose the text to brltty.  There is a long thread about
it on debian-boot.
