I have the following new entries in my custom kernel configuration
to support wscons with X:
# wscons options
options WSDISPLAY_COMPAT_PCVT #emulate some ioctls
options WSDISPLAY_COMPAT_SYSCONS #emulate some ioctls
options WSDISPLAY_COMPAT_USL # VT handling
options WSDISPLAY_COMPAT_RAWKBD # can get raw scancodes
#options PCKBD_LAYOUT="(KB_DK | KB_NODEAD)"
Furthermore I have the wscons related device entries, mostly taken
from the distributed NWSCONS kernel configuration file.
