After discussion with you on IRC, it seems to be not so easy to do and
can harm the multi_v7 early debug facilities.

So, for this patch:
Acked-by: Nicolas Ferre <nicolas.ferre@atmel.com>

It's true anyway that putting the proper values for these config options
is not so easy (reading the help for CONFIG_DEBUG_AT91_UART)... And
enhancing this situation if far beyond the scope of this patch.

Thanks. Bye,
