cbmem console: Locate the preram console with a symbol instead of a section.
On non-x86 systems, the location of the preram CBMEM console may not be in a predictable place relative to other things in the linker script. That makes it difficult to work with as its own section because the linker will complain if you try to move backwards as it lays out memory. If the console header is treated as an actual blob of memory which has to be put in the image, we'd have to predict where to put it so that it isn't before something with a lower address or after something with a higher address. Symbols, on the other hand, can be defined arbitrarily.
