Broken console driver infrastructure for SPARC

The stuff in "c/src/lib/libbsp/sparc/shared/uart/cons.c" should get removed and the new Termios device API should be used instead (see also rtems_termios_device_install()).

Summary: Superfluous console driver infrastructure for SPARCBroken console driver infrastructure for SPARC

The console devices installed with this driver are broken on SMP (attribute changes are not properly synchronized). In case RTEMS_DRVMGR_STARTUP is defined, then the SMP capable console driver "c/src/lib/libbsp/sparc/leon3/console/console.c" is disabled.

Upon further inspection, c/src/lib/libbsp/sparc/shared/uart/cons.c and c/src/lib/libbsp/sparc/shared/include/cons.h do not appear to be referenced from anywhere, and contain dead code. These can be removed safely.

I don't think the files are referenced either.

The file cons.c defines console_initialize() etc., so it is referenced in case you add a console driver to your application configuration.

Any updates for this ticket? The severity is blocker

The cons.c is used by the apbuart_cons.c driver used with the driver manager. cons.c and apbuart_cons.c were updated for SMP and to use the new termios device registration in H1 2017 (see patches from --author="maberg@…"). Therefore I think we can close this ticket now.
