Subject[PATCH] bsd-style cursor

Hi,

included a patch against 2.4.0-test9 (should apply against latest but
haven't checked) which adds the config option to have a bsd-style cursor
in VT's by default. I was hoping it might be considered for inclusion so
that I don't have to patch it in myself every time :-)


cheers,
Lennert
