This needs to be redesigned. Global bell events should be more like evens indicating a change to the screen matrix, ie use a union structure to name the console in question.

There is no need to keep a count of such global bell events. If there are so many that we can't keep up, we will miss a few, but then it's probably better that way.

I forgot hurd/console.h. I've included this and a changelog entry.

This patch does exactly what is descibed in task #2502. The VC number is not used yet, but I've added it to the protocol.

This patch adds the --extern-bell argument to libcons. It is switched off by default. Is --extern-bell a good long name or does someone have a better idea?

should I increase the protocol version number?
