Traditionally, kgdb NMI console relied on cmdline option "console=" to
enable/disable consoles. But it didn't took into account DT/ACPI modes
which can also provide default preferred console that can be enabled
prior to kgdb NMI console. And if that default preferred console is
used for debug IO operations as well then it will lead to duplicate
consoles representing same physical serial device which in turn leads
to duplicate printk messages.

In order to avoid this duplication, we need to disable/unregister debug
IO console in case the NMI console is enabled successfully. Also, we
wouldn't like to see beginning boot messages twice, so we need to
remove flag: CON_PRINTBUFFER prior to NMI console registration.
