On the project page there is the following bullet: "* /dev/console serves as the current active console, that is, any output via /dev/console will go to current active console."
I don't think that is necessarily the correct behaviour. It also isn't the behaviour (best I can tell) that Linux has for this functionality. Also how does this fit with consadm(1m) which is used to select where the console output goes today. -- Darren J Moffat
