There is a "console" locator for wsdisplay (and wskbd) which
should allow to wire a specific wsdisplay to the hardware instance
initialized as console. Something like
wsdisplay0 at [driver]? console 1
wsdisplay* at [driver]?

If you vave different cards (with different drivers), matching
the interface attribute
wsdisplay0 at wsemuldisplaydev? console 1
should also work.
