IOMUX: Add console multiplexing support.
Modifications to support console multiplexing. This is controlled using CONFIG_SYS_CONSOLE_MUX in the board configuration file. This allows a user to specify multiple console devices in the environment with a command like this: setenv stdin serial,nc. As a result, the user can enter text on both the serial and netconsole interfaces. All devices - stdin, stdout and stderr - can be set in this manner. 1) common/iomux.c and include/iomux.h contain the environment setting implementation. 2) doc/README.iomux contains a somewhat more detailed description. 3) The implementation in (1) is called from common/cmd_nvedit.c to handle setenv and from common/console.c to handle initialization of input/output devices at boot time. 4) common/console.c also contains the code needed to poll multiple console devices for input and send output to all devices registered for output. 5) include/common.h includes iomux.h and common/Makefile generates iomux.o when CONFIG_SYS_CONSOLE_MUX is set.
