Console name reported in /proc/consoles:

Ok, I will apply this internally for a while to give it some test coverage.
I also think that I found a potential statement for the documentation issue.

The tty will simply continue to work (as tty and console are not connected),
but for the console on LPAR you usually do things like
"console=ttyS0 console=ttyS1" to get console output on both (sclp line mode and
sclp full screen AKA ascii console).

When we now change the documentation to
"console=ttyS0 console=ttyS1 console=ttysclp0" the kernel will ignore the missing

  v2: also update preferred console for VT220 case
