Comment from Miguel (on the list):

Opening the console in non-blocking mode is a bad idea,
as it means that every call that is done later on the
console_fd needs to check for EWOULDBLOCK. Most of the time,
it would be not return that, it would only return that under
unique situations which means that testing this patch would
not only be non-trivial, but someone would have to audit
all the code paths.

Also, this is lacking a ChangeLog? explaining why this is needed.

But I think that this patch should not be applied, it seems
like a workaround that has not been properly implemented.

Did anybody find out why Gentoo folks applied that patch ?
Back 11 years ago, I just forwarded this as I found that patch in portage tree.

I believe we can close this bug.
