I totally agree the proper fix would be that OpenVZ provides a /dev/console. My patch is rather a workaround.
Concerning jobs specifying console access, they already fallback to CONSOLE_NONE in job_process_spawn so they are working (maybe not exactly with the same behaviour though).
Concerning jobs specifying console ownership, they will fail indeed, but those jobs (rcS, mountall-shell, ...) really can't be used in a OpenVZ environment anyway.
