    It would be clear to people rather familiar with the chip, but I agree
    it's probably not that clear of a name.

    We have two UART blocks we use in the MSMs, the older one, supported by
    this driver before this change, and a newer one that was designed to
    work with our DMA engine (known as the Data Mover, or dm). This newer
    UART can be used in a somewhat compatible manner when being used for
    serial-port type operations.

    I'm not sure what would be a better name for the flag, though. The
    block is called UARTDM.
