My first guess is that "the uart driver" is our first historical mistake.
Non standard 8250ish uarts should be their own platform driver which uses
8250.c for support.

Things like 8250_dw.c is perhaps more the style we want to be looking at
for other devices and adjusting 8250.c as needed to export or split
methods up so they can be used as helpers.
