Add hvsi0 and hvc0 to securetty

I recently installed Fedora 16/Rawhide on my power5 system, After getting systemd to spawn a getty on the console (hvsi0) [separate issue], I was unable to log in as root on said getty.

Adding entries "hvsi0" to the securetty fixes this.  Also I believe that "hvc0" is needed for other powerpc systems and virtual guests.

The securetty changes look good for powerpc.  I had to compile it up locally as the powerpc builders are a little behind ;P
