Subject: [PATCH 1/1] tty/serial: to support 8250 earlycon can be enabled independently

Sometimes, we may only use SSH to login, and build 8250 uart driver as a
ko(insmod if needed). But the earlycon may still be necessary, because
the kernel boot process may take a long time. It's not good to display
nothing but ask people to wait patiently.

In addition, the 8250.ko can not be worked if we have not opened any
other serial drivers, because SERIAL_CORE would not be selected.
