GKI kernel requires drivers built as modules including
console driver, so add the support that imx serial console
driver can be built as module.

The changes of the patch:
- imx console driver can be built as module.
- move out earlycon code to separated driver like imx_earlycon.c,
  and imx earlycon driver only support build-in.

v2:
 - fix kbuild error

Only put "default y" if you can not boot a machine without this.
Otherwise leave the default line off, it will be 'n' and can be selected
if a user wants that.

That should be the case here, please change this.

No one knows what "GKI" is, and it isn't relevant here.

Why is this not 2 separate patches?

These v2: stuff should go below the --- line.

The Next Generation Android Device kernel will consist of generic
Kernel Image (GKI) and several GKI modules, and drivers for specific
hardware (possibly closed-source drivers) will be loaded as kernel modules. 
In short, in this scenario, everything soc vendor driver is modularized. 

Anyway, it isn't relevant here. Will delete the information in v3.

It can be split into 2 separated patches, will update it in v3.

No, just remove the line, the default is 'n' with no default specified.
