Subject[PATCH 05/10] printk,early_printk,console: Allow more than one early console
Date
It is very nice to be able to use one early boot device to debug
another or to have multiple places you can see the early boot
diagnostics, such as the vga screen or serial device.

This patch changes the early_printk console device registration to
allow more than one early printk device to get registered via
register_console().

A corresponding change is required to the console registration code
such that it will properly unregister any console marked with the
CON_BOOT flag via a simple loop during a console handover or at late
init time.
