Updated console scripts for LFS 6.1 and 7.0

Hello,

Pasha Zubkov found that the font isn't being correctly set on 
framebuffer consoles. This bug also affects LFS-6.1-testing.

I have attached fixed console scripts for LFS-6.1 and 7.0 (the 
difference is that in the 6.1 script all UTF-8-related stuff is omitted).

Now these scripts work for both text-mode and framebuffer consoles.

The -I '\033(K' agetty switch can be dropped from /etc/inittab in 
LFS-6.1 with this version of the console script.
