 I see in /etc/inittab we usually spawn 6 getty:
 1:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty1
 2:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty2
 3:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty3
 4:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty4
 5:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty5
 6:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty6
 
 I think we can comment out them all to free 3MB of ram and to have less
 running useless programs. on my phone I've no tty active: I login only
 from ssh or from gui. (obviously virtual terminal is not affected by this
 change)

Change as you suggest is commited now. Will be available in next version. I 
have script for manual activation. It's also called when you switch to USB 
host mode.

Thanks

Good idea, would be nice to have it as default in distros, as IMHO most of 
users do not use all consoles.

hi, 

You can install usb keyboard and use it. But sure, no need in 6 virtual
consoles on fr.

Not sure what we here means but yes certainly it is a good idea to
disable gettys that can't be used anyway.
