Subject[39/55] powerpc/pseries/hvconsole: Fix dropped console output
2.6.32-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Anton Blanchard <anton@samba.org>

commit 51d33021425e1f905beb4208823146f2fb6517da upstream.

Return -EAGAIN when we get H_BUSY back from the hypervisor. This
makes the hvc console driver retry, avoiding dropped printks.
