[PATCH v2 18/20] ARM: sunxi: Add earlyprintk support using R_UART (sun6i/sun8i)

Tue Jun 17 07:52:55 PDT 2014

sun6i/sun8i have a UART in the RTC block group, which can be used
as an early console. This is most useful on sun8i as UART0 is muxed
with MMC0, which is not available if we boot from MMC.
