Well, we call zstty_attach() and we've set the ZS_HWFLAG_CONSOLE_INPUT flag,
so it does assume that it's the console.  I'd agree that there's a bug but
I don't know if the best place to fix it is in the calling (sparc) code or
in the zstty code.

I'm starting to think that fixing the sparc code would make more sense -
don't set the console-related zst_hwflags if we are using wscons.  However,
I'm still not 100% convinced, so I'm open to suggestions ;-)
