Subject[PATCH v1 1/3] console: introduce ->exit() callback
Date
Some consoles might require special operations on unregistering. For example,
serial console, when registered in the kernel, keeps power on for entire time,
until it gets unregistered. For such cases to have a balance we would provide
->exit() callback.
