No, this is not desired. The fix for it should not be redefining the
console to wrong argument.

For example on Odroid MC1 this problem does not exist:

[    0.000000] earlycon: exynos4210 at MMIO 0x12c20000 (options '115200n8')
[    0.000000] printk: bootconsole [exynos4210] enabled
[    3.111883] printk: console [ttySAC2] enabled
[    3.111883] printk: console [ttySAC2] enabled
[    3.120102] printk: bootconsole [exynos4210] disabled
[    3.120102] printk: bootconsole [exynos4210] disabled


but your console for some reason is tty0... why? Is your console
ttySAC2? Maybe it is the effect of alias:
serial0 = &serial_2;

It should be just earlycon.
