Re: My console rewrite is finally available

In the current implementation, a process in notty mode can't set
all termios parameters to its console through one of file
descriptors associated with it. It have to use the descripter 1
or 2 for c_oflags, and the descripter 0 for c_lflags and c_iflags.

Thus `less' can't work properly in notty mode because it use the
descripter 2 for setting the console to `raw mode' and it fails.
