Subject[PATCH] serial: max310x: rework RX interrupt handling
Date
Currently, the RX interrupt logic uses the RXEMPTY interrupt, with the
RXEMPTYINV bit set, which means we get an RX interrupt as soon as the
RX FIFO is non-empty.

However, with the MAX310X having a FIFO of 128 bytes, this makes very
poor use of the FIFO: we trigger an interrupt as soon as the RX FIFO
has one byte, which means a lot of interrupts, each only collecting a
few bytes from the FIFO, causing a significant CPU load.

Instead this commit relies on two other RX interrupt events:

- MAX310X_IRQ_RXFIFO_BIT, which triggers when the RX FIFO has reached
a certain threshold, which we define to be half of the FIFO
size. This ensure we get an interrupt before the RX FIFO fills up.

- MAX310X_LSR_RXTO_BIT, which triggers when the RX FIFO has received
some bytes, and then no more bytes are received for a certain
time. Arbitrarily, this time is defined to the time is takes to
receive 4 characters.

On a Microchip SAMA5D3 platform that is receiving 20 bytes every 16ms
over one MAX310X UART, this patch has allowed to reduce the CPU
consumption of the interrupt handler thread from ~25% to 6-7%.
