This has been fixed by making the console the same text buffer as mach,
and place ascii glyphs at ascii positions.

When executing halt on the hurd console, the GNU Mach messages that say the kernel has been shut down are hidden by the hurd console, causing the system to look like if it has hanged (since you will still see the console prompt as in

hurd@root:# halt

And you can't type anything as the system has halted.

youpi> well, if you are running on the Hurd console, that's the expected behavior actually
youpi> since the GNU Mach messages telling you that the kernel is properly shut down are hidden by the Hurd console
youpi> in this case, I guess we just need to make the console more daemonish, in that it should be properly shut down, so that you'd see the mach message
