    What? What happens when you open /dev/console then? The tty layer
    redirects the console to some tty normally.

    If this is the case then I will do it the way I started out. Having the
    lock in struct console and sharing it with the tty layer. I was thinking
    about a tty_driver just for the struct console list anyways. Currently
    accessing /dev/console only effects the first console in the list instead
    of all of them. If this is true then that means /dev/consoel can exist
    without /dev/tty which could be a good thing.
