Oh sure:
#define CON_CONSDEV     (2) /* Last on the command line */

Why it should be set in struct console statically? The patch is
obviously incorrect. And I do not understand from the vague commit log
what the problem actually was.

So for the time being, Greg, please revert it (d03516df8375873) and we
can come with something better, when we understand the issue. Please CC
stable (4.8+).

thanks,
