tty: Set correct tty name in 'active' sysfs attribute
commit 723abd87f6e536f1353c8f64f621520bc29523a3 upstream. The 'active' sysfs attribute should refer to the currently active tty devices the console is running on, not the currently active console. The console structure doesn't refer to any device in sysfs, only the tty the console is running on has. So we need to print out the tty names in 'active', not the console names. There is one special-case, which is tty0. If the console is directed to it, we want 'tty0' to show up in the file, so user-space knows that the messages get forwarded to the active VT. The ->device() callback would resolve tty0, though. Hence, treat it special and don't call into the VT layer to resolve it (plymouth is known to depend on it).
