fbdev: work around old compiler bug
When building with a 4.1.x compiler on powerpc64 (at least) we get this error: drivers/video/logo/logo_linux_mono.c:81: error: logo_linux_mono causes a section type conflict This was introduced by commit ae52bb2384f721562f15f719de1acb8e934733cb ("fbdev: move logo externs to header file"). This is a partial revert of that commit sufficient to not hit the compiler bug. Also convert _clut arrays from __initconst to __initdata. Sam said: Al analysed this some time ago. When we say something is const then _sometimes_ gcc annotate the section as const(?) - sometimes not. So if we have two variables/functions annotated __*const and gcc decides to annotate the section const only in one case we get a section type conflict.
