video: Drop unused console functions
CONFIG_CONSOLE_CURSOR, CONFIG_SYS_CONSOLE_BLINK_COUNT and CONFIG_CONSOLE_TIME are not used by any board. The implementation is not great and stands in the way of a refactor of i8042. Drop these for now. They can be re-introduced quite easily later, perhaps with driver-model real-time-clock (RTC) support. When reintroducing, it might be useful to make a few changes: - Blink time would be more useful than blink count - The confusing #ifdefs should be avoided - The time functions should support driver model - It would be best keyed off console_tstc() or some similar idle loop rather than a particular input driver (i8042 in this case) Signed-off-by: Simon Glass <> Reviewed-by: Bin Meng <>
