I am sorry that I have not had time to look into this. Even this reply
has not been properly researched. I am glad that Jim has put in the
effort I have not, but the patch does not look right.

The kbd-1.08 patch was (wrongly) included in my patch (I made the patch
a long time ago, and forgot about how it was made).

The kbd maintainer did add a patch to support devfs in openvt, but IIRC
the patch did not catch all the places where VTNAME was used, so openvt
still did not support devfs. My patch corrected this. I do not see
any mention of VTNAME2 in Jim's patch.

This does need checking. I am sorry that I cannot do it right now.
