virtio_console: use virtqueue notification for hvc_console
This patch exploits the new notifier callbacks of the hvc_console. We can use the virtio callbacks instead of the polling code. Signed-off-by: Christian Borntraeger <borntraeger@de.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au>
