Subject: [PATCH v3] vt: Fix a missing-check bug in con_init()

In function con_init(), the pointer variable vc_cons[currcons].d, vc and
vc->vc_screenbuf is allocated by kzalloc(). And they are used in the 
following codes. However, kzalloc() returns NULL when fails, and null 
pointer dereference may happen. And it will cause the kernel to crash. 
Therefore, we should check the return value and handle the error.

Further, since the allcoation is in a loop, we should free all the 
allocated memory in a loop.
