tty/serial: fix 8250 early console option passing to regular console

In the conversion to generic early console, the passing of options from
the early 8250 console to the regular ttyS console was broken. This
resulted in the baud rate changing when switching consoles during boot.

This feature allows specifying a single console option on the kernel
command line rather than both an early console and regular serial tty
console. It would be nice to generalize this feature. However, it only
works if the correct baud rate can be probed early which is not the
case on many platforms which have non-standard UART clock rates. So for
now, this is left as an 8250 specific feature.
