Summary

x86 needs it, as does sparc64. powerpc doesn't use it by default, but some old
powermac notebooks do not work with vt yet for reasons unknonw. Even so, I've
removed it from powerpc LINT. It's not in daily use there, and the intent is to
100% switch to vt now that it works for that platform to limit support burden.

If you wanted to be super crazy you could have a NOTES.syscons file, but that is perhaps over engineering just for syscons. If you did that, I would put the screen savers in it as well and then sparc64 would keep the few 'nodevice foo_saver' it has currently.

Once you do this, this comment isn't quite as meaningful.

Which is to say, I would probably leave this comment out, and maybe combine the changes to move the screen savers with this into a single "syscons" commit.

This updated comment probably goes in the first x86/conf/NOTES commit?
