Given that the aliasing only makes sense for console=uart, and
console=uart8250, we can do the following. Not exactly the nicest
code, but only slighty more ugly than what we have now in
do_early_param()

Subject: [PATCH] param: console: Do not treat console as synonym for earlycon

Since 2007 console= and earlycon= are treated as synonyms, but the
syntax for both options is different. The only case in which they
are identical is for console=uart or console=uart8250. All other
cases currently lead to the warning:

earlycon: no match for xxx

This patch drops the general aliasing, but keeps the current
behaviour for console=uart and console=uart8250 to keep the kernel
parameters compatible.
