SubjectRe: [PATCH v2] Add a new VT mode which is like VT_PROCESS but doesn't require a VT_RELDISP ioctl call

Haha yeah, that's a very good point. I put a note in the first version of this patch that it had been compile tested only... I probably should have put the note in the second version as well. It would probably be a good idea to hold off on committing this anywhere until I actually get it working with X. In fact, maybe it would even be best for you to back it out of the mm tree until it's been "proven", at which point I'll resubmit the patch.

I am now actively working on that.

Also, sorry about the code style issues. I'm a bit of a noob at this. I will include the style fixes in the next version of the patch.
