Thing 3:

If you don't want to wait for reboot, don't feel like making big plans
for the future, and just want a VT now, as root do something like

# systemctl enable getty@tty8.service

As I just discovered, the "enable" line above is actually the easy way
of doing Thing 2.

If you only want a one-off tty, the following "start" line is all you
need.

# systemctl start getty@tty8.service

and then Ctrl-Alt-F8.

Hope this helps.
