* This is the max number of console adapters that can/will be found as
* console devices on first stage console init. Any number beyond this range
* can't be used as a console device but is still a valid tty device.
* The Linux TTY code does not support dynamic addition of tty derived devices
* so we need to know how many tty devices we might need when space is allocated
* for the tty device. Since this driver supports hotplug of vty adapters we
* need to make sure we have enough allocated.
