Looks ok to me. I'll give it another day to hear from Christopher, and then
I'll do the merge.

The base inittab recipe is creating inittab entries for consoles listed
For qemu, this contains "115200,hvc0" so an entry is created in inittab
for it.
Prevent to create a second entry if hvc0 is present in SERIAL_CONSOLES.

On qemuarm, this solves issues with the console when starting on top of
Xen as dom0.
