o.k. I will look at the implementation details for "support
of packed ring" for virtio_console. This will take some time.

Meanwhile "virtio_console" port hotplug/unplug is broken in upstream.
Can we accept this patch as it fixes the upstream and together
with parent patch(b3258ff1d6) does nice cleanups as well.
