OK, since it's not mux, and since those who actually maintain this
driver don't seem to be taking care of this, I did some digging today.

Russell is right.  It's a mismatch between assumed runtime PM state
(disabled) and actual HW state.

During init, all omap_devices are idled by default, so that they are
correctly in the state that the runtime PM framework will later expect
them to be.  That is, all devices *except* the console UART.  For that
one, we use the special hwmod flag to not idle/reset the UART since that
will cause problems during earlyprintk usage, and the switch between
the earlyprintk console and the real console driver.

Since the console uart was left enabled during init, it needs to be
fully enabled and the runtime PM status set accordingly.

The patch below does this, and works fine on 2420/n810, as well as on
3530/Overo, 3730/OveroSTORM, 3730/Beagle-XM and 4430/PandaES.

Will send patch with a proper changelog shortly,
