Subject: [PATCH 1/1] vt: add ioctl commands to /dev/vcsaX to get/put the
 current palette of the given tty

From: Cedric Roux <sed@...e.fr>

Adding a ioctl interface and two ioctl commands to /dev/vcsaX
to get/put the current palette of the given tty.

Signed-off-by: Cedric Roux <sed@...e.fr>
---
This patch exists because there is no way to get the current
installed palette of a given tty. The PIO_CMAP and GIO_CMAP
in vt_ioctl.c:vt_ioctl play with the global default colormap.
And /dev/vcsaX don't dump the palette through their read
interface. And since a user may change colors of a given
tty by escape sequences, one should be able to retrieve
the palette through /dev/vcsaX, leading to this patch.

Some points I am not fully confident with:
- I am not sure about the return values in case of error.
- vt.c:set_colormap is now used in vc_screen.c so cannot be static
  anymore.
  The goal of this patch is to allow read access to the palette,
  I can remove the PIO_CMAP case and make set_colormap static again.
  This case is there because /dev/vcsaX is read/write so the access
  to the palette should also be read/write. (Or I can do it
  differently, no problem, just tell me how.)

(In case of formatting problem of this mail, I apologize.
I have a very bad mail access... Just tell me and I'll
do my best to resend something clean.)
