    SubjectRe: No bug in drivers/char/vt.c
    Han Holl:

    : I guess I found a bug in the kernel. (My first!).
    : The consoles reported back in vstat->v_state on the VT_GETSTATE request
    : are shifted by one, and tty0 is reported twice. (Please don't tell me
    : POSIX requires this <G>).

    You did not understand the difference in numbering of tty's
    and vt's (there is a shift by 1: vt's 1..63 correspond to tty's 0..62).
    Your change would break X and other programs.
