The correct phrase is "bikeshed". (It's a verb now.)

_I_ don't, no. I intentionally moved it unmodified. If you want to
submit a patch on top of mine, be my guest.

Define "should". (I'll get the popcorn.)

/dev/console not existing in an initramfs created by pointing
CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE at a directory created by a normal user was
pretty much my initial motivation for poking at this area, yes.

That said, /dev/console should always exist. My patch was just finding a
different way for it to exist so the condition was satisfied. Meaning
the comment isn't exactly _wrong_, just really terse. Feel free to
submit a patch rephrasing it.
