Hi Greg,

I rebased and retested the patch (both devicetree and legacy boards, multiple
pxa variants, early console and standard console), and it does work. The
fallback on the old driver works as well.

I also signed it as the pxa maintainer, and I'm pushing it now, in [2].

If you want context, it's archived in [1].

If you're overburdened and feel there won't be a merge conflict in your serial
tree, I can take it through pxa tree provided you ack it, or you can take it,
just let me know.
