loader: console setup is still broken
I got two notifications about issues. First one was from Yuri, who found that vmware vm without serial ports defined, was spamming loader menu screen. Second one was from Dominic, who noticed that one system did only set console to ttyb and not "text,ttyb".
Investigating the issue, I got some changes which do simplify the code and make it more robust.
return list of console devices from cons_change().
we do walk the list of proposed consoles in cons_change(),
lets build final activated consoles list there.
stop calling c_probe() twice.
clean up and simplify prefconsole handling.
use console name list from cons_change()
