This patch causes boot lockup on PA Semi hardware, since it disables
the bar on the UART that is used for console, and it has printks
between the old and the new re-enable location. If I boot with 'debug'
level for printk, I hit this. If I boot with just regular console
args, I don't.

I'm guessing any other platform that uses MMIO-based UART on PCI for
console will have similar issues. I can verify on Chrome OS x86
hardware tomorrow if legacy powerpc isn't important enough to care
about. :-)

I have no proposal for a fix for this. Can you please consider
reverting for 3.6 unless someone has a better idea?
