The console server and console client return an FSTYPE of FSTYPE_MISC.  hurd/hurd_types.h contains a listing of all system-related FSTYPEs, and there is room for two new ones.

Ideally the FSTYPE of /dev/vcs could be inspected to determine if there's a console-server running.  I realize that a translator can report any FSTYPE it likes, but if /hurd/term has a well-known and descriptive FSTYPE, so should the console server and client.
