console/Kconfig: Enable CBMEM console by default
Currently on AMD boards no romstage messages can be saved in CBMEM, so only messages from ramstage on will be stored in CBMEM. Other than that nothing changes. Enabling CBMEM console by default does not noticeably decrease boot time as the messages are directly written to CAR or RAM. The board status script under `util/board_status/` reads the coreboot messages from CBMEM, which are then uploaded to the board status repository. With CBMEM console disabled by default, currently no coreboot console messages are uploaded to the board status repository, although it is important to have those. Enabling CBMEM console by default improves this situation, so that for all boards at least ramstage messages are stored in the board status repository.

Enable this to save the console output in a CBMEM buffer. This would
allow to see coreboot console output from Linux space.
