[PATCH] vt: fix potential dual con_driver register for conswitchp

From: Wang YanQing
Date: Sat Dec 28 2013 - 22:04:22 EST

We should check whether conswitchp is registered before
add it to registered_con_driver in con_init, or it will
cause dual con_driver register for conswitchp.

Although I haven't met it in reality, but I think it could
happen for Embeded devices, who register platform con_driver
earlier than call con_init.
