I'm not following. I think you are saying that I need to configure the
clock registers - but in my patch I don't touch them and it works. Are
the registers intended to be read so I can determine HOW the device is
configured, are they intended to be written in order to change how it is
configured, or both.

Firmware sets up some initial state and this has been what I'm trying to
match in order to get an early serial console.

Not quite. I need to be able to use the UART at boot as an early serial
console. So I believe I need to match the firmware UART configuration
early on (well before we could call setserial).
