console: console_get_by_name: do not strcmp NULL
console_get_by_name iterates through the console_list using strcmp to mach a given console by name. console_list may contain entries with devname = NULL, inserted there e.g. by KEYBOARD_GPIO. In worst case loady -t usbserial will crash barebox when strcmp hits 0 NULL devname: > unable to handle NULL pointer dereference at address 0x00000000 Let console_get_by_name just ignore the anonymous consoles.
