I am using UART peripheral for Synopsys simulator same as one used by arch/arc/plat-sim
I know this platform do not use CONFIG_SERIAL_8250_DW due to some problem I suspect it is relate to the loop test.

Maybe Vineet Gupta or Alexey Brodkin from Synopsys which are CC here can comment.

So It just happen for me to be a pioneer with this.

More than that "no-loopback-test" is an option already exist for core 8250, and since DW is only an extension for this driver it should also benefit from this option.

If all this is yet not enough, should I re-send this "patch set" again without this specific patch?
