[PATCH] hvc_console: display printk messages on console.

From: Miche Baker-Harvey
Date: Wed Oct 05 2011 - 13:49:10 EST

printk only works for "registered consoles." Currently, the hvc_console
code calls register_console() from hvc_instantiate(), but that's only
used in the early console case. In hvc_alloc(), register_console() was
not called.

Add a call to register_console() in hvc_alloc(), set up the index in
the hvc_console, and set up the necessary vtermnos[] and cons_op[]
entries so that printk functions work.

However, I'm not sure how this is supposed to be working, and not at all
sure how this should tie in with command line selection of the console,
or if there are other related issues I may have missed. I'd really
appreciate your comments.
