SubjectRe: [PATCH] serial: core: fix console problems on uart_close

No, for me it hangs because uart_tty_port_shutdown() is _not_ skipped
when the UART is used as a serial console. Writing to the serial port while
it's shut down hangs.

This doesn't work for me, as port->console is still false. It should be true
when used as a serial console, to make sure tty_port_shutdown() skips
an active serial console.

Mike: I see you are using a PC, while I'm using an ARM board (with DT).
Are you using a serial console? If yes, what's the value of port->console
before and after the call to uart_console() that Rob's patch below removes?

Thanks!
