[PATCH] set altix preferred console

From: Mark Maule <maule_at_sgi.com>
Date: 2005-11-12 04:52:43
Fix default VGA console on SN platforms.  Since SN firmware does not pass
enough ACPI information to identify VGA cards and the associated legacy IO/MEM
addresses, we rely on the EFI PCDP table.  Since the linux pcdp driver is
optional (and overridden if console= directives are used) SN duplicates a
portion of the pcdp scan code to identify if there is a usable console VGA
adapter.  Additionally, dup necessary pcdp related structs to avoid dragging
drivers/pcdp.h into a more public location.
