No the API does not give this info. As for multihead their is nothing you
can do really. At this point we should just label the console system and
fbcon as not supporting multihead. Their are far to many problems with
multihead to fix. currcon or lastcon. It doesn't really matter at this
point. Multihead is just broken :-(
