SubjectRe: [PATCH 03/16] tty: serial: 8250_core: read only RX if there is something in the FIFO

The OMAP UART for instance have two possible TX-IRQ handling. The
default is to fire the interrupt once there is room for at least one
byte in the FIFO. I set the OMAP_UART_SCR_TX_EMPTY bit to get the same
behavior as the 8250 driver expects (interrupt while the FIFO is empty).
Without this bit set I've seen the message from time to time.
