initramfs-boot: create /dev/console
The Yocto kernel expects a proper /dev/console to exist before running init, otherwise booting will fail with the message: Kernel panic - not syncing: /dev/console is missing or not a character device! Please ensure your rootfs is properly configured Add similar fix as was done for initramfs-framework and initramfs-live-boot in commits 0352841cd92f6316bcac092e2fff9d28c352b36b 1b64664f0c388f41084f5db6e46e3e68c53fb6d9 Signed-off-by: Jacob Kroon <jacob.kroon@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Ross Burton <ross.burton@intel.com>
