[PATCH] vcsa attribute bits -> ioctl(VT_GETHIFONTMASK)
When reading /dev/vcsa while a font with more than 256 characters is loaded, one of the attribute bits records the 9th bit of the character. But depending on the console driver (vgacon or fbcon for instance), that's bit 3 or bit 0. And there is no way for userland to know that, thus no way for userland to safely grab the screen content. So here is a (tested) patch: Add a VT_GETHIFONTMASK ioctl for knowing which bit is the 9th bit for VC text (vc_hi_font_mask field of the vc_data structure).
