System: NetBSD miyu 2.0_BETA NetBSD 2.0_BETA (MIYU) #10: Sat Jul 10 03:16:36 MEST 2004 feyrer@miyu:/home/cvs/src-2.0/sys/arch/i386/compile/obj.i386/MIYU i386

	I have WSDISPLAY_SCROLLSUPPORT enabled in my 2.0_BETA/i386
	kernel, and I cannot use shift/alt/ctrl+page/cursor-up/down
	to scroll back on any of my virtual consoles.

	options.4 doesn't document the option (yeah, trying to RTFM
	to find out... failed!).

	enable WSDISPLAY_SCROLLSUPPORT in your 2.0-style kernel
	try to scroll back.
	try to RTFM.

	Linux uses control+page up/down to scroll on virtual consoles.
	It would be nice if that was used when WSDISPLAY_SCROLLSUPPORT
	is enabled too. Regardless, the option should be documented.
