U-Boot DM model probe only single device at a time
which is enabled and configured using device tree
or platform data method.

PL011 UART IP is SBSA compliant and firmware does the
serial port set-up, initialization and let the kernel use
UART port for sending and receiving characters.

Normally software talk to one serial port time but some
LayerScape platform require all the UART devices enabled
in Linux for various use case.

Adding support to probe all enabled serial devices like SBSA
compliant PL011 UART ports probe and initialization by firmware.

  Incorporated Simon and Stephan review comment
  - Define generic function uclass_probe_all(enum uclass_id)
    in drivers/core/uclass.c
  - Added the function in caller of serial_find_console_or_panic()
  - Removed repeated sequence with generic function call uclass_probe_all()
  - Dependent on other patch [PATCH] dm: core: add function uclass_probe_all()
    to probe all devices

  Incorporated Stefan review comment, Update #ifdef with macro
  if (IS_ENABLED)..
