Bug Description

SRU Justification:

Impact: Qemu mach-virt requires VIRTIO_CONSOLE=y as is the only available console option there, and having it as =m doesn't let you see the boot messages until initrd is mounted

Fix: apply the attached config patch and recompile a kernel

Testcase:

try booting a qemu mach-virt instance with and without a patched kernel

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-saucy' to 'verification-done-saucy'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
