  VT_ACTIVATE will cause a switch to VT number.
  VT_WAITACTIVE will sleep/wait until the specified VT has been activated.

  $ sudo cat /proc/$(pidof chvt)/stack
  [<0>] __vt_event_wait.isra.2.part.3+0x40/0x90
  [<0>] vt_waitactive+0x80/0xd0

  [<0>] 0xffffffffffffffff

  Enable debuglogs doesn't provide additional details.

  As soon as auto-login is turned off, chvt is back to normal.

  The above has been reproduced on Ubuntu:
  - Ubuntu Bionic w/ gdm3 3.28.3 & kbd 2.0.4
  - Ubuntu disco w/ gdm3 3.30.1 & kbd 2.0.4
