The console boot argument structure has been updated since OpenBSD 7.3.

https://github.com/Openbsd/src/commit/66d55b09c560003edd61d52fbd347170dbe9c32d

https://github.com/Openbsd/src/commit/745c2f60e98fd1f418c104960a567e120624d705

This patch updates the “grub_openbsd_bootarg_console” and leaves the old
structure as “grub_openbsd_bootarg_console_legacy”.

My patch checks the version number string of the loading kernel. If it is
prior to 7.3, it replaces the  “grub_openbsd_bootarg_console” structure
data with the  “grub_openbsd_bootarg_console_legacy”  structure data.

If the loading kernel is stripped, Grub2 won’t know which structure should
be used. So users can specify the legacy console structure by adding the “-
l” option with the “kopenbsd” command.
