virtio: console: Use cdev_alloc() instead of cdev_init()
Amit Shah [Thu, 2 Sep 2010 12:50:59 +0000 (17:50 +0530)]
This moves to using cdev on the heap instead of it being embedded in the
ports struct. This helps individual refcounting and will allow us to
properly remove cdev structs after hot-unplugs and close operations.
