If that is the case then devfs needs some tweaking


-----
Linux Filesystem Heirarchy Standard

6.1.2

All devices and special files in /dev should adhere to the Linux Allocated
Devices document, which is available with the Linux kernel source. It is
maintained by H. Peter Anvin.

------

Virtual terminals are specifically listed as

4 char TTY devices
0 = /dev/tty0 Current virtual console

1 = /dev/tty1 First virtual console


Thus using any other name places devfs out of the standard. Is there a
reason for devfs not providing /dev/tty{n} (nothing stops it providing
/dev/vc/n as well)
