Hi Wu!

I just gave it quick spin on my Alchemy boards, works quite well!

For the debug code (dbg.[ch]) I suggest you leave the actual uart-banging
to board code (either in the form of cpp macros or inlined functions)
because most chips either don't have a 16550 compatible uart or (in the
alchemy case) have a 16550 with non-standard register layout.

Thanks you for your work!
