Isn't "SHIFT" the usual term rather than "OFFSET". Why not add this
define into include/uapi/linux/serial_reg.h, along with all the other
UART_FCR_TRIGGER_* defines?

Perhaps use UART_FCR_TRIGGER_MASK rather than a hard-coded "3" (and then
you'd have to mask before shifting).

Does the "(up->fcr == uart_config[port->type].fcr)" term prevent the
user from changing the trigger level multiple times? Perhaps this is
intended?

"val" is rather generic here, and doesn't describe what the function is
doing. What about fcr_get_rxtrig_bytes()?

Given that FCR_RX_TRIG_BITS() does all the required shifting/masking,
why not just:

val = conf_type->rx_trig_byte[FCR_RX_TRIG_BITS(up->fcr)];

> +static int convert_val2rxtrig(struct uart_8250_port *up, unsigned char val)

Perhaps name this bytes_to_fcr_txtrig()?

Why not replace that with:

const struct serial8250_config *conf_type = &uart_config[up->port.type];
if (conf_type->rx_trig_byte[0]) {

(or something like that anyway)

That means this switch statement doesn't need to be updated when new
UART types are modified to set up the rx_trig_byte field.
