make braille support in installer work again

Set release notes
as root run
brltty -l 7 -e -n -b xw -x no -A auth=none,host=127.0.0.1:1 -B font='-*-fixed-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1'
this should open a braille line in an Xterm
as user run a recent KVM:
BRLAPI_HOST=127.0.0.1:1 qemu-kvm -cdrom openSUSE.iso -m 1000 -monitor stdio -serial braille
11.4 contains a fix so that you should see something on the braille-xterm during ncurses install.
When this feature is done, the text should match the current selection is yast or whatever is considered most useful to "see", to allow doing an install without using the screen.
