I also found somewhere that there was/is also a problem with passphrase
entry when you have kbdmux enabled in the kernel.

However, removing it did not fix it for me. Because I am booting from a
USB thumbdrive which has my key on it, and the thumbdrive is removed
after boot, I just went without a passphrse.
