Because struct serial8250_config does not convey any uart_port ops.

This was the location where the core was already doing it's break
handling, so it made sense to check here if the device had any quirks
to run. There shouldn't be any implications because the core was
already doing clear_rx_fifo() immediately before calling
uart_handle_break. Here is the relevant hunk with a bit more context:

if (unlikely(lsr & UART_LSR_BRK_ERROR_BITS)) {

else if (lsr & UART_LSR_FE)

Can you help me with an incremental patch to fix this up? I can
muddle my way through Tegra internals, but I already missed the
of_serial.c hook.
