[PATCH] fbcon: Use persistent allocation for cursor blinking



Every time the console cursor blinks, we do a kmalloc/kfree pair.  This
patch turns that into a single allocation.

This allocation was the most frequent kmalloc I saw on my test box.

Per Alan's suggestion, move global variables to fbcon's private structure.
This would also avoid resource leaks when fbcon is unloaded.
