(Re-tested on v6 of the patch.)

On bare metal: boot, log in on tty1, printf '\e[3J', screen clears but when
I scroll back, it still has bootup messages.  Switching to another tty then
back obviously doesn't clear it either.  Same on any other tty (after
putting something into the scrollback of).  Graphics card is nvidia GT240,
neither proprietary driver nor nouveau loaded; nouveau forces fbdev and your
patch is vgacon specific (hopefully just for now).

But then, I just reproduced this on qemu (-vga qxl) too, so it might be due
to a difference between our setups somehow.  In case it's something related
to .config, mine's at https://angband.pl/tmp/config-4.9.0-rc6-debug2+.xz


Meow!
