[PATCH RFC] serial-core: reset the console speed on resume

From: Yin Kangkai

Hi all,

On some platforms, we need to restore the console speed on resume even
it was not suspended (no_console_suspend), and on others we don't have
to do that.

So don't care about the "console_suspend_enabled" and unconditionally
reset the console speed if it is a console.

This is actually a redo of ba15ab0 (Set proper console speed on resume
if console suspend is disabled) from Deepak Saxena. I also tried to
investigate more to find out if this change will break others, here is
what I've found out:

serial-core: restore termios settings when resume console ports

serial-core: skip call set_termios/console_start when no_console_suspend

serial-core: resume serial hardware with no_console_suspend

commit ba15ab0e8de0d4439a91342ad52d55ca9e313f3d
Author: Deepak Saxena <dsaxena@xxxxxxxxxx>
Set proper console speed on resume if console suspend is disabled

from ba15ab0, we learned that, even if the console suspend is disabled
(when no_console_suspend is set), we may still need to "reset the port
to the state it was in before we suspended."

Then with 4547be7, this piece of code is removed.

And then Jason Wang added that back in ca2e71a and 891b9dd, to fix
some breakage on OMAP3EVM platform. From ca2e71a we learned that the
"set_termios" things is actually needed by both console is suspended
and not suspended.

That's why I removed the console_suspended_enabled condition, and only
call console_start() when we actually suspeneded it.

I also noticed in this thread:
http://marc.info/?t=129079257100004&r=1&w=2, which talked about on
some platforms, UART HW will be cut power whether or not we set
no_console_suspend, and then on resume it does not work quite well. I
have a similar HW, and this patch fixed this issue, don't know if this
patch also works on their platforms.
