ttys - Add 'ifconsole' option to ttys entries

* Add the 'ifconsole' option.  This allows you to construct a line as shown
  below to enable a getty (e.g. on a serial port) only if the tty is the
  system console.

    ttyd0   "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600"   dialup  on secure ifconsole

  The ifconsole option also silently disables any devices which do not
  exist, removing unnecessary console spam.

* Modify libc and init to handle the new flag.

* Modify the nrelease build and ttys defaults to use this option for
  ttyd0, ttyd1, ttyd2, and ttyd3.

* Avoids previously reported issues with system crashes on certain machines
  whos serial ports are not implemented properly without having to fully
  disable the default ttyd* getty feature.  If the serial port isn't the
  console, it won't be enabled.

* Add a sysctl to the kernel which init needs to test whether a tty is the
  console or not.

This is the top level of the DragonFly source directory.

For copyright information, please see the file COPYRIGHT in this
directory (additional copyright information also exists for some
sources in this tree - please see the specific source directories for
more information).

The Makefile in this directory supports a number of targets for
building components (or all) of the DragonFly source tree, the most
commonly used being ``buildworld'' and ``installworld'', which rebuild
and install everything in the DragonFly system from the source tree
except the kernel, the kernel-modules and the contents of /etc.  The
``buildkernel'' and ``installkernel'' targets build and install
the kernel and the modules (see below).  Please see the top of
the Makefile in this directory for more information on the
standard build targets and compile-time flags.

Building a kernel is a somewhat involved process.  Documentation
for it can be found at:
Also see the build(7) and config(8) man pages.

Note: If you want to build and install the kernel with the
``buildkernel'' and ``installkernel'' targets, you might need to build
world before.  More information is available in the DragonFly handbook.

The sample kernel configuration files reside in the sys/config
sub-directory (assuming that you've installed the kernel sources), the
file named GENERIC being the one used to build your initial installation
kernel.  The file LINT contains entries for all possible devices, not
just those commonly used, and is meant more as a general reference
than an actual kernel configuration file (a kernel built from it
wouldn't even run).
