[PATCH] ARM: early_printk: respect keep parameter

Parse and use the keep parameter of earlyprintk to avoid having the kernel
output stop with:

Console: colour dummy device 80x30
console [tty0] enabled
bootconsole [earlycon0] disabled

This happens because once tty0, the virtual terminal console is registered,
it is selected as the default console, disregarding an existing stdout-path
DT property and the early console is shutdown before the console driver is
