If a console was specified by ACPI SPCR table _and_ command line parameters like
"console=ttyAMA0" _and_ "earlycon" were specified, then log messages
appears twice.

This issue was addressed in the patch [1] but the approach was wrong and
a revert [2] was suggested.

First patch "printk: fix name and type of some variables" was sent some time
ago [3].  It fixes name/type/scope of some variables without changing the logic.

The real fix is in the second patch.  The root cause is that the code traverse
the list of specified consoles (the `console_cmdline` array) and stops at the
first match.  But it may happen that the same console is referred by
the elements of this array twice:

	ttyAMA0 -- from command line
	pl011,mmio,0x87e024000000,115200 -- from SPCR

but in this case `preferred_console` points to the second entry and
the flag CON_CONSDEV is not set, so bootconsole is not deregistered.

To fix that, match the console against the `console_cmdline` entry
pointed by `preferred_console` instead of the first match.
