 This part of the PR seems to be specific to sparc and sparc64.  It  
 works fine on other ports (tested: i386, macppc), but sparc and  
 sparc64 both fail.  macallan says "we probably block console output as  
 long as the corresponding fb device is open"
 I'm not sure what the fix is, but at least it's not a regression with  
 new X.Org.
 I fixed the other half of this PR earlier today.
