Default Bug#689962: linux-image-3.2.0-4-amd64: Compile with CONFIG_VIRTIO_CONSOLE=y

Package: linux-image-3.2.0-4-amd64
Version: 3.2.30-1
Severity: normal

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA256

Dear Maintainer,

When using a virtio console, we cannot get early boot messages since
it is only available as a module. Wouldn't it make sense to compile it
in-kernel to get the same behaviour as with a serial console?

In fact, as of 3.6, it is not possible to use virtconsole as an initial
console. I don't know if this will be fixed later but this makes the bug
for this specific kernel moot.

Feel free to close if you think there is nothing to do here.

Thanks.
