Description

See motivation in the parent ticket.

For hyper-v (e.g. https://openqa.suse.de/tests/latest?arch=x86_64&distri=sle&flavor=Server-DVD&machine=svirt-hyperv&test=lvm%2BRAID1&version=12-SP5) we cannot collect logs before the reboot, because we fail to switch tty's.
We should explore what is possible there.
We could try using chvt tool for that, which still requires some console.

Also, after installation it works fine, so we might adjust hyperv_console_switch, which uses exactly chvt, whereas for the installer, we need to open xterm with alt-shift-ctrl-x key combo.
