fbcon: allow fbcon to use the primary display driver
Allow fbcon to select the primary display adapter using the fb_is_primary_device() arch-specific helper. If a a primary adapter is detected, fbcon will unbind the old adapter from the VT layer, then rebind using the new adapter. This requires that bind_/unbind_con_driver() be made public. Because this feature may produce unexpected behavior (from the user's POV), this must be explicitly enabled in Kconfig.
