monitor: Rework API (Jan Kiszka)

Refactor the monitor API and prepare it for decoupled terminals:
term_print functions are renamed to monitor_* and all monitor services
gain a new parameter (mon) that will once refer to the monitor instance
the output is supposed to appear on. However, the argument remains
unused for now. All monitor command callbacks are also extended by a mon
parameter so that command handlers are able to pass an appropriate
reference to monitor output services.

For the case that monitor outputs so far happen without clearly
identifiable context, the global variable cur_mon is introduced that
shall once provide a pointer either to the current active monitor (while
processing commands) or to the default one. On the mid or long term,
those use case will be obsoleted so that this variable can be removed

Due to the broad usage of the monitor interface, this patch mostly deals
with converting users of the monitor API. A few of them are already
extended to pass 'mon' from the command handler further down to internal
functions that invoke monitor_printf.

At this chance, monitor-related prototypes are moved from console.h to
a new monitor.h. The same is done for the readline API.
