Yup the behaviour change from 4) needs to be called out. I think this
should then also be done as part of the large patch series to remove the
dummy functions from all console drivers.

I don't expect the errno change to cause trouble, and it's the more honest
errno - changing fonts not supported is the truth. But if it is, we can
patch that up appropriately when we get a regression report. That's kinda
unavoidable with old crufty uapi like this one here.

Also a bikeshed: Additional information like the patch changelog or
reasons why you do something is imo best to include in the commit message
itself. It ends up looking a bit less tidy sometimes, but often there's
crucial information in these parts that was accidentally left out from the
commit message.
Thanks, Daniel
