I don't know exactly how the hvsi0 tty works. But if this equivalent
to a local console, serial console or the IBM hvcx console that are
already present I'd file this as a normal bug. 

If the maintainer does not agree with your reasoning he can always
downgrade the bug or tag it wontfix. But without evidence to the
contrary I guess he's just not aware of the issue.
