Most of the coding here is done by Filip Kokosinski - I'm responsible
for managing the patches and sending to LKML so I don't think I
qualify as a co-developer :)

We'll check that.

Sure, we'll add that.

We'll reformat the code to match 76 chars.

This is related to how LiteX peripherals (LiteUART being one of them)
handle register access.
The LiteX HW splits a classic 32-bit register into 4 32-bit registers,
each one containing only 8-bit part of it.

SIZE in this context means how many of those "subregisters" (still
32-bit wide, but with only 8-bit of meaningful data) to read/write.
The "litex.h" header (patch 3 of this patchset) provides common
functions for doing it, but it must know the size for each register.

Do you mean to avoid indirection caused by defines and write e.g.,
`.driver_name = "liteuart"`?

OK, but the reason we have defines in the first place is because we
use the same name in many places and we want to avoid inconsistencies
(typos, partial rename, etc.).
What's more, looking at other serial drivers I see the notation is not
consistent - many of them use defines for name/major/minor as well.

This is inspired by serial_core.c and other serial drivers.
We don't support any alternative `port->types` values so it's probably
not necessary for us, but it seems that this is how other serial
drivers are written too.

You are right. We'll reorder the initialization.

We'll protect it with a mutex to avoid race conditions.

This indeed can be simplified.

You mean that `of_match_ptr(X)` resolves simply to `X` when
`CONFIG_OF` is defined?
In this context it surely can be simplified.

We'll fix this.

You mean we should remove an empty line between the definition of
liteuart_console_init() and the call to console_initcall()? It seems
to be inconsistent across different drivers, but sure - no problem.

This is inspired by other serial drivers that also reserves
identifiers in this file and handles them the same way we do. We
simply followed the convention.

Thanks for your time and the comments! We'll address them in the next
version of the patchset.
