The "system hard console" will be /dev/console (vt number is 0), and
virtual consoles will be /dev/vt# (vt number is from 1 to MAX VT

During X startup, it will remember the last active console, then
query an available virtual console for itself, and activate it.

During X shutdown, it will re-activate the last active console.

And it will be just like what we have today without virtual console.
You will no ttymon on /dev/console or virtual console.
