No it is activated during boot. Termwrap also contains code that should
be remove after release (#250789)

Same bug in termwrap.

As I can see from termwrap it is preferred way (ctrl_shift_toggle).

Is it possible to configure console font automatically and ask for
keymap in second stage?

This may be a problem for all supported architectures.

This is known bug. Fixed in base-config.
