> Besides, the FIFO size can not be read or guessed from other registers:

> better reserved for future usages. Instead, the FIFO size of each

> Finally, on a given SoC, there can be several instances of USART with
> different FIFO sizes. This explain why we'd rather use a dedicated DT
> property than use the "compatible" property.
