Yes, for kernel console.
To be clear, if user supplies "console=ttySx" it keeps powered on
always. But if there is no such parameter, we are fine with RPM.

Letting kernel console do power management on the systems without
irq_safe hack is dangerous in terms of loosing important data (crash, or
some other stuff which needs atomic context: kgdb?).
