SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/2] serial: qcom_geni_serial: Make kgdb work even if UART isn't console

I forget how the partial word snapping works. Are you sure you want
word_cnt == 1? I see qcom_geni_serial_handle_rx() looks at RX_LAST
independently as long as word_cnt != 0. I'm worried the hardware
allows one FIFO entry with say 2 bytes in it and RX_LAST set, but then
also piles new stuff in the FIFO behind it, so that word_cnt can be
>1.

Also I mostly reviewed the change on Gerrit, they seemed to be the
same. In this case it was easier to understand the indentation
changes. If there were gotchas between the Gerrit version and this
patch, let me know.
