[PATCH] startup: Do not overwrite global.linux.bootargs.console

global.linux.bootargs.console already exists. It is created during
console registration with a value, so do not overwrite it with an
empty value during init sequence. Instead create the variable if it
doesn't exist, but keep the old value if it does exist.
