Since taking over fbdev in 2017 I've tried to act as the last resort
Maintainer for console stuff (AFAIK there are no "lost" patches) but
it really deserves its own entry.

Also most console patches make it through you nowadays anyway:

$ git log --pretty=fuller --since=2017 drivers/video/console/|grep "Commit\:"|sort|uniq -cd
