You are both right.  

In the end conswitchp needs to be set if and only if CONFIG_VT is set.  
From this regard, I think it is OK to leave this config there even if 
not all that useful given current code.

OK, I admit.  I already checked it in that way :0  If anyone is seriously
mad, I can take it out.  It does not really matter.  What really
matters is we repealed another unnecessary tax on board part.


PS. the tax repealling thing is really learned from our governer Arnold
Schwarzenegger ....
