No console on tty1 after systemd upgrade on Gentoo

After upgrading systemd to version 242 or higher on Gentoo you may encounter that you do not have a console on tty1 anymore.

To fix this you need to issue the following commands:

  # systemctl enable getty@tty1.service
  # systemctl enable

This is not needed for new installs after 2019-08-12 since there was a fix for new installs. However upgrading old existing installs is still affected.

Gentoo bug #691854.
