      .Driver disk menu fails to display user inputs on the console

      When you start RHEL installation using the `inst.dd` option on the kernel command line with a driver disk, the console fails to display the user input. Consequently, it appears that the application does not respond to the user input and stops responding, but displays the output which is confusing for users. However, this behavior does not affect the functionality, and user input gets registered after pressing `Enter`.

      As a workaround, to see the expected results, ignore the absence of user inputs in the console and press `Enter` when you finish adding inputs.

    Description

      Description of problem:
      Driver disk menu in RHEL-9.1 doesn't print what the user enters. This can be quite confusing as the user may think that the menu is entirely broken or has frozen (because no user input is echoed back), until enter is pressed:

      Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
      anaconda-34.25.1.9-1.el9 / RHEL-9.1-20220718.0

      How reproducible:
      Always.

      Steps to Reproduce:
      1. Start RHEL-9.1 installation with 'inst.dd' on kernel command line and a driver disk present.
      2. When the driver disk menu shows up, try to enter something.
      3. Hit enter.

      Actual results:
      Nothing the user enters shows up on the console. When enter is pressed, the actual input is confirmed (which most likely will result in an error as the user may try to enter the same input several times).

      Expected results:
      Anything the user enters is printed on the console, so that the interaction between the user and the TUI works with a proper feedback.
