During upgrade the text console was lost and replaced with a gdm login
screen.  The second time this occurred neither the keyboard or mouse
would respond.  Unplugging and replugging each of these USB devices
resovled the problem.

The attached patch tells the user how to recover.  USB is repeated
twice because, technically, PS2 keyboards should not be hotplugged
and, although I have not tested this, I do not believe that doing
so would change anything.

Closing, since there has been no indication of whether it is relevant
for Wheezy.
