current code will:
for earlycon, will probe baud rate, and save it back to device->options.

and later update the command line
uart to ttyS, update the options with baud rate.

And your change will not try to find the exact port to have baud rate.
and just use command.
So will have have that probed baud rate passed.

Please check if you can fix this regression.
Maybe you have to put back command line update code back.
