	src/sys/dev/wscons: wsdisplay_compat_usl.c

Log Message:
Make the VT_* ioctl()s work in LP64/big endian platforms, like sparc64.
The problem is that these ioctl()s are declared as _IO() and expect to pass an
integer as argument, instead of a pointer. When dereferencing the argument
pointer in the ioctl() handler as an int we get the upper 32bit of the value so
we simply dereference it as long. Other _IO() ioctl()s may need similar fixes.

Tested on sparc64, sparc and macppc.
