Restore the original intent of the VT_RESIZEX ioctl's `v_clin' parameter
which is the number of pixel rows per character (cell) rather than the 
height of the font used.

For framebuffer devices the two values are always the same, because the 
former is inferred from the latter one.  For VGA used as a true text 
mode device these two parameters are independent from each other: the 
number of pixel rows per character is set in the CRT controller, while 
font height is in fact hardwired to 32 pixel rows and fonts of heights 
below that value are handled by padding their data with blanks when 
loaded to hardware for use by the character generator.  One can change 
the setting in the CRT controller and it will update the screen contents 
accordingly regardless of the font loaded.

The `v_clin' parameter is used by the `vgacon' driver to set the height 
of the character cell and then the cursor position within.  Make the 
parameter explicit then, by defining a new `vc_cell_height' struct 
member of `vc_data', set it instead of `vc_font.height' from `v_clin' in 
the VT_RESIZEX ioctl, and then use it throughout the `vgacon' driver 
except where actual font data is accessed which as noted above is 
independent from the CRTC setting.

This way the framebuffer console driver is free to ignore the `v_clin' 
parameter as irrelevant, as it always should have, avoiding any issues 
attempts to give the parameter a meaning there could have caused, such 
as one that has led to commit 988d0763361b ("vt_ioctl: make VT_RESIZEX 
behave like VT_RESIZE"):

"syzbot is reporting UAF/OOB read at bit_putcs()/soft_cursor() [1][2], for
vt_resizex() from ioctl(VT_RESIZEX) allows setting font height larger than
actual font height calculated by con_font_set() from ioctl(PIO_FONT).
Since fbcon_set_font() from con_font_set() allocates minimal amount of
memory based on actual font height calculated by con_font_set(),
use of vt_resizex() can cause UAF/OOB read for font data."

The problem first appeared around Linux 2.5.66 which predates our repo 
history, but the origin could be identified with the old MIPS/Linux repo 
also at: <git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/ralf/linux.git> 
as commit 9736a3546de7 ("Merge with Linux 2.5.66."), where VT_RESIZEX 
code in `vt_ioctl' was updated as follows:

 		if (clin)
-			video_font_height = clin;
+			vc->vc_font.height = clin;

making the parameter apply to framebuffer devices as well, perhaps due 
to the use of "font" in the name of the original `video_font_height' 
variable.  Use "cell" in the new struct member then to avoid ambiguity.
