This is an update to the zs.c driver to make it wait for the transmission 
line to become idle before disabling the transmitter or resetting the 
chip.  This way the character that is on the way at the time one of these 
actions is about to be performed does not get corrupted.

 Plus a change to reset the index/data pointer first before issuing a chip 
reset just in case the state is wrong when control of the chip is taken 
the first time.

 These are almost obvious, but I have run-time tested them just in case.  
They make the switch from the initial (early printk) PROM-based console 
less disruptive.  The change to load_zsregs() also affects set_termios().
