[Xen-devel] [PATCH RFC OSSTEST 07/19] ts-host-install: include console before *and* after the -- marker.

As of v3.15 Linux now stop parsing its command line at the -- mark and passes
the remainder to init. This has broken Debian Installer's feature where
anything after the -- is propagated to the installed system.

See also https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=762007

To work around this we need to pass console= twice, once before the -- for the
current kernel's use and then again after the -- which is propagated to the
installed system.
