commit 97293de977365fe672daec2523e66ef457104921 upstream.

* allow NULL consw->con_scrolldelta (some consoles define an empty
  hook)
* => remove empty hooks now
* return value of consw->con_scrolldelta is never checked => make the
  function void
* document consw->con_scrolldelta a bit

[ for 4.4.y backport, only do the first change above, to prevent
.con_scrolldelta from being called if not present - gregkh]
