One notable change that was made is that we were able to simplify the
jobs to the point where the number of login consoles is now configurable,
without editing or removing upstart job definitions.

This is done by the ACTIVE_CONSOLES parameter in /etc/sysconfig/init;
the default value is "/dev/tty/[1-6]", which means that mingetty
will be started on ttys 1 through 6. Shell globs are accepted.
