As of commit in kernel:
6104c37094 fbcon: Make fbcon a built-time depency for fbdev
framebuffer console is build in into framebuffer module and there's no
standalone fbcon module. Therefore drop the kmod-fbcon and enable
console in kmod-fb. The only targets which use these modules are imx6
and geode, both are on kernel 4.14 so no fallback for other kernels is
introduced.
Being at that this commit also fixes autoload of fbdev for x86.
