Ah. I've never used it either, but thanks to Google I'be developed a
keyword-memory (using Google as external-storage memory) which
said "pam_console". It appears that the current pam module that
does something similar is called pam_devperm:
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.3.1-1)
Description: PAM module to change device ownership on login
This PAM module allows you to change device ownership and permissions
when a user logs in.
This is functionally equivalent with SunOS logindevperm(4).
