This gives me the impression that systemd would be a single monolithic
binary but isn't vconsole-setup.c that you mention actually part of a
small helper binary at /lib/systemd/systemd-vconsole-setup?
I've only studied systemd for a few weeks but can't you for example
replace the line
in /lib/systemd/system/systemd-vconsole-setup.service with something
ExecStart=strace -o /var/tmp/systemd-vconsole-setup /lib/systemd/systemd-vconsole-setup
to get at least some debugging data? And if you suspect that an upgrade
broke something you probably can get an older version of this binary
with debsnap and then
systemctl restart systemd-vconsole-setup.service
to test it.
