Subject: [U-Boot] [PATCH v2] NS16550: buffer reads

From: Scott Wood <scottwood@freescale.com>

From: Scott Wood <scottwood@freescale.com>

This improves the performance of U-Boot when accepting rapid input,
such as pasting a sequence of commands.

Without this patch, on P4080DS I see a maximum of around 5 lines can
be pasted.  With this patch, it handles around 70 lines before lossage,
long enough for most things you'd paste.

With it enabled, on ppc it's an extra 396 bytes of image size, and 1056
bytes of BSS.

ARM note from Simon Glass <sjg@chromium.org> - ARM code size goes from
212 to 484 bytes (extra 272 bytes), BSS to 1056 bytes.

Signed-off-by: Scott Wood <scottwood@freescale.com>

Changes in v2:
- Fix checkpatch warnings, the other one was already there
