[qemu-s390x] [PATCH 11/18] scripts/qemu.py: support adding a console wit

From: Cleber Rosa
Subject: [qemu-s390x] [PATCH 11/18] scripts/qemu.py: support adding a console with the default serial device
Date: Thu, 17 Jan 2019 13:56:21 -0500

The set_console() utility function traditionally adds a device either
based on the explicitly given device type, or based on the machine type,
a known good type of device.

But, for a number of machine types, it may be impossible or
inconvenient to add the devices my means of "-device" command line
options, and then it may better to just use the "-serial" option and
let QEMU itself, based on the machine type, set the device

To achieve that, the behavior of set_console() now flags the intention
to add a console device on launch(), and if no explicit device type is
given, and there's no definition on CONSOLE_DEV_TYPES, the "-serial"
is going to be added to the QEMU command line, instead of raising
