Andrew, would you please replace move-hcdp-pcdp-to-early-uart-console.patch
with the revised version attached?

The most important change is to add usage notes in the changeset
comments because this change breaks many existing serial console
setups (for HP ia64 boxes).  The breakage is unfortunate, but I
think justified in order to finally make the ttyS names stable
across firmware configuration changes.

The other changes to the patch itself (see the attached interdiff)
are to update the config help and to ignore the HCDP/PCDP if the
user specifies "console=" explicitly.

I'll be out on vacation until 11/15.  Just FYI so you don't think
I'm ignoring any feedback :-)
