커널소스를 분석해 보진 않아서 정확하게 어떻게 여는지는 모르겠지만,
아마 tty 특성상 canonical mode로 여는것으로 보인다.

/dev/console is a symbolic link to /dev/tty0, and the kernel regards /dev/tty0 as a synonym for the current VT. XFree86 1.3 changes the owner of /dev/tty0, but does not reset this after finishing. Thus, loadkeys or dumpkeys might fail because someone else owns /dev/tty0; in such a case you might run X first. Note that you cannot change keyboard mappings when not at the console
