Created attachment 1061134 [details]
screenshots of broken and current tty

Description of problem:
After changing font in vconsole.conf and restarting systemd-vconsole-setup font changed in current tty but other ttys become unreadable.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change font in /etc/vconsole.conf (I am using "UniCyr_8x14" or "UniCyr_8x8").
2. Go to tty3 and login as root
3. Run "systemctl restart systemd-vconsole-setup"
4. Press Alt+F2 or Alt+F4 and see that tty2 and tty4 are broken (see screenshot)

Additional info:
It reproducable only when KMS applied or when added vga=0x318 (or other mode) to kernel command line (not in 80x25 text mode)

The basesystem package is a meta-package only, which itself installs no files.  I am switching the component to systemd...
