From: Michal Simek <monstr@monstr.eu>

Many boards have a bug-free ns16550 compatible serial port, which we should
register as PORT_16550A. This introduces a new value "ns16550a" for the
compatible property of of_serial to let a firmware choose that model instead
of using the crippled PORT_16550 mode.
