   methods will die an unused dusty death.  pcvt was removed from the
   kernel last weekend, and while i couldn't come up with any sound
   reasons for it not to be (or problems with it being removed), i will
   miss it.  it fell into disuse, was unmaintained, and was excised.  if
   the kmem grovelling routines are not used, they'll start to be
   unmaintained (since the sysctl stuff "works") and i'm afraid they'll
   eventually die.
   or am i just being pointelessly paranoid?

pcvt was removed because (a) it is a piece of sh*t and (b) we have
a far more versatile MI console driver now.

you are far, far too paranoid.  go register another few atdotdotdot's. :)
