Yep, this is the answer (having a login prompt on tty0).
con0=fd:0,fd:1 is the default UML config, but that's tuneable, so I warned
about it too.

I'd add a small correction: console and vc/0 are different, so I guess you
need to make them match (i.e. with the above line, I think vc/0 in securetty
probably doesn't work).
More important, with /dev/console you get that Ctrl-C, Ctrl-Z and so on won't
work (even on host Linux). With vc/0 (or tty0, in non-DevFS speech) they
Btw, I'd suggest converting to non-devfs as it went away starting from 2.6.13.
