So looking at the code in ui/console.c that implements our
virtual consoles, the scrolling is hooked up to the keycodes
to be output by one of our UI frontends, SDL.

Gerd, how is this supposed to work? Shouldn't something
in the generic console code be handling converting the
what the vc layer expects, rather than having each of the
ui frontends doing it?
