Perhaps this is wrong: perhaps it should be done in the
startup_procinit and startup_authinit calls, by adding an extra out
parameter to them.

Perhaps if proc were to call startup_procinit after it has begun
managing port operations, and likewise for auth, then we wouldn't have
to worry about the console making calls on proc and auth.  Not sure
however, it would still depend on exactly what calls are made.
