I ported/rewrote that from Marvell's 3.10 vendor tree.

Yes. It never got released and got abandoned. I got several drivers
cleaned up to support it and the clock code in before that happened. I
had a in-progress DRM driver too. I was debugging why some monitors
worked and others didn't when I stopped working on it. I think the
board you are working on has the same ADV7533?

It's all up on my Linaro tree:

Humm, well I added support in commit 6ad991b699b4e to of_serial.c and
then it looks like it got copied to 8250_pxa.c recently. Not sure if
that really made sense or not. We should remove one of them.
8250_pxa.c looks fairly pointless to me. Turning a clock on/off in
resume/suspend is already supported by 8250_of.c (which doesn't have
the bug of turning off the console's clock in suspend). The only other
thing is the errata in serial_pxa_dl_write.

The earlycon core already sets up reg-shift for you.

I added earlycon support in commit a4c639b04f301d. I used "ns16650a"
as a fallback compatible string, so there's not an explicit PXA/MMP
compatible string there.

Yeah, it was drivers/tty/serial/pxa.c that I was thinking of. I was
incorrectly thinking 8250_pxa.c was that one.
