serial: convert early_uart to earlycon for 8250
Beacuse SERIAL_PORT_DFNS is removed from include/asm-i386/serial.h and include/asm-x86_64/serial.h. the serial8250_ports need to be probed late in serial initializing stage. the console_init=>serial8250_console_init=> register_console=>serial8250_console_setup will return -ENDEV, and console ttyS0 can not be enabled at that time. need to wait till uart_add_one_port in drivers/serial/serial_core.c to call register_console to get console ttyS0. that is too late. Make early_uart to use early_param, so uart console can be used earlier. Make it to be bootconsole with CON_BOOT flag, so can use console handover feature. and it will switch to corresponding normal serial console automatically. new command line will be: console=uart8250,io,0x3f8,9600n8 console=uart8250,mmio,0xff5e0000,115200n8 or earlycon=uart8250,io,0x3f8,9600n8 earlycon=uart8250,mmio,0xff5e0000,115200n8 it will print in very early stage: Early serial console at I/O port 0x3f8 (options '9600n8') console [uart0] enabled later for console it will print: console handover: boot [uart0] -> real [ttyS0] Signed-off-by: <yinghai.lu@sun.com> Cc: Andi Kleen <ak@suse.de> Cc: Bjorn Helgaas <bjorn.helgaas@hp.com> Cc: Russell King <rmk@arm.linux.org.uk> Cc: Gerd Hoffmann <kraxel@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
