This is *VERY* old information.  When Pentium's were introduced
(755/560) series, it has no longer been a necessity.

The old 486 laptops need vt0, but anything newer works fine with sc0.

(I speak from experience, having had an IBM laptop for 7-8 years, and
being responsible for writing or integrating the code in FreeBSD to
support IBM Thinkpads.)

I'm also typing on a ThinkPad right now, which is my 'main' platform,
and it's doing fine with syscons, as have my previous 3 ThinkPads.
