Description

This is initial change request in path to update the console.

The current font related code is integrated in tem and in font files. The change is about setting up dedicated setup for font related sources, so the code can be accessed by tem and early console.

This is preparation to enable framebuffer (FB) based console support in kernel. In case of FB, we need to render the text to screen by using font and we must support this for dboot, early boot (when kernel is still being initialized) and when kernel is fully set up and system is running. Since in all the cases the work to be done is the same, we should share the code as much as possible, and to achieve this, it is needed to extract the font related functions to dedicated “library”. Also collect the current font files and support scripts to the same location. No functional change in this patch, only rearranged the files.
