Hmm, I don't know. This moves sort of important code from common upper
layer down to particular driver implementation. Should there be another
driver/super-braille.c it must test CON_BRL flag as well.
Because printk invokes _braille_unregister_console() unconditionally,
and _braille_unregister_console() unconditionally calls into the driver.

I guess we can remove CON_BRL from braille_unregister_console() instead,
because printk tests it.
