And all consoles are ttys :)

Ok, how about fs/proc/proc_console.c instead?

And no, printk.c is not the most logical place for something like this.
If I see a proc file, I am not going to automatically assume that
printk.c would have anything to do with it. As it really doesn't
(printk goes to the kernel log buffer, not a console).
