Subject[PATCH 09/16] tty: serial: 8250_dma: Add a TX trigger workaround for AM33xx
Date
At least on AM335x the following problem exists: Even if the TX FIFO is
empty and a TX transfer is programmed (and started) the UART does not
trigger the DMA transfer.
After $TRESHOLD number of bytes have been written to the FIFO manually the
UART reevaluates the whole situation and decides that now there is enough
room in the FIFO and so the transfer begins.
This problem has not been seen on DRA7 or beagle board xm (OMAP3). I am not
sure if this is UART-IP core specific or DMA engine.

The workaround is to use a threshold of one byte, program the DMA
transfer minus one byte and then to put the first byte into the FIFO to
kick start the transfer.

v7…v8:
- fix the problem when get invoked and the FIFO is full.
