Add console wrapper for UART driver
Coreboot is designed to have a single serial console at most, on top of that it may have a CBMEM (virtual) console. Matters are complicated by the fact that console interface is different between bootblock and later stages. A linker list of console driver descriptors is used to allow to determine the set and type of console drivers at compile time. Even though the upstream seems to have done away with this approach, which does not seem the best idea. As an alternative this patch introduces a common wrapper which different UART drivers can plug in into. The driver exports a single API which can be used both directly (in bootblock) and through the wrapper (in later stages). The existing drivers can be adjusted to fit this scheme one by one. The common UART driver API also aligns fine with the upstream approach.
