Okay, this probably means that the program that creates these VTs
doesn't work, ie. crashes almost immediately after startup. Every time
it stops (quits normally or crashes) init will start it up again
immediately, resulting (in your case) in a new crash (and another
attemp, etc.) If this happens too often, init will wait 5 minutes before
retrying; hence the warning.
I believe agetty is what normally creates VTs - go check if it works.
