    serial/ns16550: add an option to avoid hanging on broken platforms · 7de0fe1a

    Some platforms (e.g. IGEPv2 board) has a broken ns16550 UART that
    does not set the TEMT bit when the transmitter is empty in SPL.
    This makes U-Boot to hang while waiting for TEMT to be set.
    
    Add a new option to avoid this:
    
    CONFIG_SYS_NS16550_BROKEN_TEMT
    
    16550 UART set the Transmitter Empty (TEMT) Bit when all output
    has finished and the transmitter is totally empty. U-Boot waits
    for this bit to be set to initialize the serial console. On some
    broken platforms this bit is not set in SPL making U-Boot to
    hang while waiting for TEMT. Define this option to avoid it.
