Good for you.

I do wonder how many of these still exist though.

I haven't had one of those on a desk since the early
'90's (a VAXstation w/VMS and a DECstation w/Ultrix)

This one's been dead for about that long too so
what's a little more time...

The commit that removed it was:
commit c708093f8164011d01eb3bbdf7d61965f283ee0e
Author: James Simmons <>

Moved all console configuration out of arch directories into
drivers/video/console. Allow resize of a single VC via the tty layer.

I think you could do:
