There already exists a wscons driver in sys/dev/tc/tfb.c - although Toru
says this isn't field tested. If you want support for X or rcons (the
current console), you'll could backport it. Taking a look at tfb.c and
sys/arch/pmax/dev/cfb.c would be a good place to start.

There really shouldn't be too much work involved, just a lot of
cut-and-paste. Ask me if you want help.
