console: Implement pre-console buffer
Allow redirection of console output prior to console initialisation to a temporary buffer. To enable this functionality, the board (or arch) must define: - CONFIG_PRE_CONSOLE_BUFFER - Enable pre-console buffer - CONFIG_PRE_CON_BUF_ADDR - Base address of pre-console buffer - CONFIG_PRE_CON_BUF_SZ - Size of pre-console buffer (in bytes) The pre-console buffer will buffer the last CONFIG_PRE_CON_BUF_SZ bytes Any earlier characters are silently dropped.
