    SubjectA console_ioctl to erase the scrollbackbuffer

    It would be good to have a ioctl to erase the scrollbackbuffer. This
    ioctl could be issued (as one possible application) by a small
    programm, every time a user logs out, so nobody can read afterwards
    what the user had on the display.

    Now this is only possibly by changing the terminal. This can be
    automated by two VT_ACTIVATE/VT_WAITACTIVATE-ioctls, but this
    is an ugly hack.

    What do you think?
