LIN7-3959 : qemu TOPTS='-gc' only uses graphics console if TARGET_QEMU_BIN=kvm

QEMU provides inconsistent behavior and a regression.  For glibc-std-sato, using kvm with qemu then the graphics console works as in wrlinux-4,5,6x.  Without kvm, then qemu 'console' behavior degrades and the target console can only be viewed via a vnc session, requiring extra steps to work on the console.


Use vnc

Steps to Reproduce

configure for intel-x86-64 glibc-std-sato and build fs.

With kvm no regression
TARGET_QEMU_BIN=/usr/bin/kvm make start-target TOPTS="-gc"

Without kvm regression
make start-target TOPTS="-gc"
(target console gives address to use for vnc session)
