    amd64 loader: Use efiserialio for Hyper-V booted systems

    UEFI provides ConIn/ConOut handles for consoles that it supports,
    which include the text-video and serial ports. When the serial port
    is available, use the UEFI driver instead of direct io-port accesses
    to avoid conflicts between the firmware and direct hardware access, as
    happens on Hyper-V (Azure) setups.

    This change enables efiserialio to be built for efi-amd64 and has
    higher order priority vs comconsole, and only uses efiserialio
    if the hypervisor is Hyper-V. When efiserialio successfully
    probes, it will set efi_comconsole_avail=true which will prevent
    comconsole from probing in this setup.

    Tested on Hyper-V, ESXi and Azure VMs.
