Um, your patch is about multiple consoles support in loader(8),
which is, while related, is not about what I have touched.
What I have touched was a stale comment that kernel does not
support multiple consoles.  Setting "boot_multicons=" in
/boot/loader.conf, or using "boot -D" in the loader(8) will
enable it.  (I'm working on updating the documentation in
this respect.)
