This is a leftover from the previous version of the patch
and shouldn't be there - sorry for that.
I'll remove it.

Sure, I'll change the commenting style here.

It's true that litex_check_csr_accessors() already generates error
codes that could be
returned directly.
The point of using BUG() macro here, however, is to stop booting the
system so that it's visible
(and impossible to miss for the user) that an unresolvable HW issue
was encountered.

CSR-accessors - the litex_{g,s}et_reg() functions - are intended to be
used by other LiteX drivers
and it's very unlikely that those drivers would work properly after
the fail of litex_check_csr_accessors().
Since in such case the UART driver will be affected too (no boot logs
and error messages visible to the user),
I thought it'll be easier to spot and debug the problem if the system
stopped in the BUG loop.
Perhaps there are other, more linux-friendly, ways of achieving a
similar goal - I'm open for suggestions.

Thanks for the review!

Best,
