    It' s not a kernel issue. If the X server run in iopl() and own the video
    card, _it_ must care that everything will return OK when it' s killed.

    It' s possible using a X wrapper that run as root (not as user) and wait
    for the child to die (once the X child is died the wrapper can restore the
    text console fine).
