Subject: [PATCH]serial: make early_uart to use early_prarm instead of
 console_initcall

[PATCH]serial: make early_uart to use early_prarm instead of console_initcall

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

earlycon=uart,io,0x3f8,9600n8
earlycon=uart,io,0x3f8,9600n8 console=tty0

it will print in very early stage
Early serial console at I/O port 0x3f8 (options '9600n8')
later for console it will print
console handover: boot [uart0] -> real [ttyS0]
