Do you know if the usart was actually designed by energymicro or licensed
from another party? If it is a licensed part, it would be better to
list the "compatible" value under the company name that made it.

I would suggest that you also support the "clock-frequency" and/or
"current-speed" properties that are defined for serial ports, see the
of_serial driver.

Why not tristate? If it's not a console, you should be able to use
it as a module.

I would generally prefer not to make the driver depend on the
platform, so we can get better compile time coverage. I think a better
set of dependencies would be

depends on HAVE_CLK
depends on OF
default ARCH_EFM32

Please use writel_relaxed() instead of __raw_writel().

of_iomap() would be simpler here. I think you can leave out the assignment to
mapbase, and go straight to membase here.

checking the resource size should not be necessary, because that would imply
having an invalid device tree, which you don't have to check at run time.
