ESEMANTIC_ERROR.

1) What do you refer to with the last "it"?

2) What's the purpose of mentioning struct console_font at all?

3) Could you clarify whether you checked it is safe to remove the hooks?

4) All the hooks now return ENOSYS for both consoles (and not 0). Is 
this intentional?

I know answers to the first 3 questions, but you need to elaborate a bit 
in the commit log to connect those sentences. Esp. for people not 
dealing with the code on a daily basis. Ad 4) I am not sure.
