It is an interesting issue though... Will somebody please write the output of
showconsolefont run from tty1 and tty2. Are the outputs the same?

As I figured out, when creating new TTYs, kernel inherits setting that have
been set for /dev/tty0. If a take a loot at /sbin/setsysfont, you will see
/bin/setfont $SYSFONT $ARGS
echo -ne "\033(K" 2>/dev/null > /proc/$$/fd/0
sets the font at the current tty where rc.sysinit is being run, which
is /dev/tty1! So that tty2-tty6 which are indeed created after this step,
appear with a not-a-user defined from from tty0. tty0 is not affected by
SYSFONT value from /etc/sysconfig/i18n.
So that you have manually /bin/setfont for other ttys.
Am I wrong?
