My solution was far more reasonable. Map it <VDM1> at 4000h and set a bit
to enable it (small hack). That way it used no TPA space and was still
faster than using a TTY. I later set up one of the NS* controllers that
way for a full 64k space. Of course I had to write my own drivers but it
was pretty trivial.
