Add a db_ function to ddb that takes console rows and columns.  Add
code, inside #ifdef DDB, to the various console packages, that updates
DDB's idea of the console display size.  Call this function whenever
the console screen changes.b (stty size on /dev/console, even.)

The function is, well, just nicer than exposing variable names :).
