tty/serial: fix 8250 early console option passing to regular consolev3.14/topic/earlycon
In the conversion to generic early console, the passing of options from the early 8250 console to the regular ttyS console was broken. This resulted in the baud rate changing when switching consoles during boot. This feature allows specifying a single console option on the kernel command line rather than both an early console and regular serial tty console. It would be nice to generalize this feature. However, it only works if the correct baud rate can be probed early which is not the case on many platforms which have non-standard UART clock rates. So for now, this is left as an 8250 specific feature.
