I happen to use the same code from ar7. So this part
serial_int/serial_out should be fine?
#define PORT(offset) (KSEG1ADDR(MY_MIPSBOARD_REGS_UART0 + (offset * 4)))
static inline unsigned int serial_in(int offset)
return readl((void *)PORT(offset));
static inline void serial_out(int offset, int value)
writel(value, (void *)PORT(offset));
