Subject:tty: add 'active' sysfs attribute to tty0 and console device
From:Kay Sievers (kay.@vrfy.org)

commit be0d5f02c9194fe41c1aad11d7282db117bda938 Author: Kay Sievers <kay.@vrfy.org> Date: Tue Nov 9 18:53:59 2010 +0100

tty: add 'active' sysfs attribute to tty0 and console device

Userspace can query the actual virtual console, and the configured console devices behind /dev/tt0 and /dev/console.

The last entry in the list of devices is the active device, analog to the console= kernel command line option.

The attribute supports poll(), which is raised when the virtual console is changed or /dev/console is reconfigured.
