Previously I have posted these five patches as part of the larger CPU
support patch set.  I am separating them out now as I have
incorporated changes as suggested by Alan Cox, and these are ready for
review now.

Changes from previous version:

* I/O functions now called serial_{in,out}.

* UART_BUG_OCTEON_IIR workaround moved to OCTEON serial_in function
  and out of this patch set.

Since these are the only non-mips specific patches required for OCTEON
cpu support, it is necessary to get these Signed-off-by before the
full OCTEON patch set can proceed.  Also since serial is lacking
active maintainers, I am sending directly to akpm and Alan in hopes
that one or more of them will review the patches.

Five patches to follow.

David Daney (5):
  8250: Don't clobber spinlocks.
  8250: Serial driver changes to support future Cavium OCTEON serial
  Serial: Allow port type to be specified when calling
  8250: Allow port type to specify bugs that are not probed for.
  Serial: UART driver changes for Cavium OCTEON.
