I'm using 2.1.111 with standard console support, eg. no fbcon stuff
enables. I notice the following bugs/differences from 2.0.x and 2.1.106
text mode consoles:

1) I can _blank_ the console with "find ." in /usr/src/linux. The
operation takes about 1 sec to complete (when cached). If I press up arrow
then return to fire off repeated "find ." commands _before_ the previous
one has completed, my console blanks! Restores when I alt-f<something

2) On my system, Alt-F8 is a non-existant console. When I'm on a valid
text console and press Alt-F8 (or F9, etc.) my text cursor stops blinking,
but the screen remains on the original tty. Screwy.

3) I appear to have _much_ less pages of scrollback with shift-pageup.
