It is (mostly) the same thing as before. We have additionally 
omap_8250_startup() in the backtrace but it is the same thing.
So you  say I miss a clock? Looking through serial8250_do_startup() I see:
- pm_runtime_get_sync(port->dev); which should get the clocks up
- serial8250_clear_fifos() which does a write at address + 8. Seems to 
- serial_port_in(port, UART_LSR); does a read at address + 0x14, seems 
  to work.
- serial_port_in(port, UART_RX); does a read at address + 0. This is 
  probably the bad one.

Now comparing with omap-serial I noticed that I do a 32bit access
instead a 16bit.
Could you please try the following hack:

diff --git a/drivers/tty/serial/8250/8250_core.c b/drivers/tty/serial/8250/8250_core.c

besides that, I don't see what could be different.
