Kernels booting on RISC-V can specify "earlycon" with no options on
the Linux command line, and the generic DT earlycon support will query
the "chosen/stdout-path" property (if present) to determine which
early console device to use.  Document this appropriately in the
admin-guide.

Jon already applied a patch from me removing the bogus arch restrictions
on the earlycon without arguments documentation, so this should not
be required.

Jon,

can you please revert this?  The paragraph above this addition already
describes the riscv case perfecty well with my previous patch:


	earlycon=	[KNL] Output early console device and options.

			When used with no options, the early console is
			determined by stdout-path property in device tree's
			chosen node or the ACPI SPCR table if supported by
			the platform.

			[RISCV] When used with no options, the early
			console is determined by the stdout-path
			property in the device tree's chosen node.

I support reverting the RISCV section, now that Christoph's more general 
change has gone in.
