Subject[PATCH 0/3] RISC-V SBI earlycon
Date
This patchset adds RISC-V SBI earlycon and removes RISC-V EARLY_PRINTK.

We should use earlycon over existing EARLY_PRINTK for SBI console because:
1. It's a more generic way of implementing early console for debugging
2. Current RISC-V EARLY_PRINTK is a compile-time option whereas earlycon
is enabled at run-time via kernel parameters.
3. To use earlycon with SBI, we have to pass "earlycon=sbi" in kernel
parameters. If earlycon kernel parameter is not provided then kernel
boots much faster which is very useful in real-world RISC-V deployments.

The patchset is tested on QEMU virt machine. It is based on Linux-4.20-rc5
and can be found at riscv_earlycon_v1 branch of:
https://github.com/avpatel/linux.git
