Subject: [PATCH v7 3/3] console: Add persistent scrollback buffers for all VGA consoles
Date: Sun, 27 Nov 2016 17:51:49 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1480265509-20922-4-git-send-email-manuel.schoelling@gmx.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1480265509-20922-1-git-send-email-manuel.schoelling@gmx.de>

Add a scrollback buffers for each VGA console. The benefit is that
the scrollback history is not flushed when switching between consoles
but is persistent.
The buffers are allocated on demand when a new console is opened.

This breaks tools like clear_console that rely on flushing the
scrollback history by switching back and forth between consoles
which is why this feature is disabled by default.
Use the escape sequence \e[3J instead for flushing the buffer.

+	  Say Y here if the scrollback history should persist when switching
+	  between consoles. Otherwise, the scrollback history will be flushed
+	  each time the console is switched.
+
+	  This feature might break your tool of choice to flush the scrollback
+	  buffer, e.g. clear(1) will work fine but Debian's clear_console(1)
+	  will be broken, which might cause security issues.
+	  You can use the escape sequence \e[3J instead if this feature is
+	  activated.
+
+	  Note that a buffer of VGACON_SOFT_SCROLLBACK_SIZE is taken for each
+	  created tty device.
+	  So if you use a RAM-constrained system, say N here.
