Sorry for the delay -- I was out of town for a few days last week
and didn't have access to email.
Funny you should ask. I recently started a thread on the subject
on the linux-kernel mailing list.
sysvinit does not provide a controlling terminal to any init
actions, but it also doesn't try to do any getty-like things
either. The best ideas so far are either 1) use openvt from a
respawn init action, or 2) change busybox so that if a tty is
specified init will try to get a controlling terminal but
silently fail if that is not possible and carry on as usual.
I'm going to try and get this worked out tomorrow (Monday),
