    kernel - Fix syscons cursor movement
    * Recent commits broke the cursor movement test, causing
      certain cursor movements to not update the screen.
    * Re-enable the asynchronous update thread, whos primary
      purpose is to fix stuttering sound and other interrupt
    * Add a sysctl kern.syscons_async which defaults to 1
      to control whether the async thread is used or not.
      This can be changed at any time.
