Line status register offset for pl011(which is in foundation model) and 8250
based uart are not same. I think, in that case we should keep separate argument
for lsr. Can you please try patch[1] and let me know your feedback.

If you are using UART0 of foundation model, then you would be passing
--port=0x1C090000. With patch[1], you may pass one more argument
--port-lsr=0x1C090018,0x80. Even if --port-lsr is not passed to kexec() system
call, it will not hang. However, one may not see all the printed character
without --port-lsr.
