tty: add 'active' sysfs attribute to tty0 and console device



tty: add 'active' sysfs attribute to tty0 and console device

Userspace can query the actual virtual console, and the configured
console devices behind /dev/tt0 and /dev/console.

The last entry in the list of devices is the active device, analog
to the console= kernel command line option.

The attribute supports poll(), which is raised when the virtual
console is changed or /dev/console is reconfigured.
