Pulled into next/soc, thanks!

Regarding the debug_ll code, having the autodetection is nice, but note
that the fashionable way to handle this now is to use earlycon instead
of earlyprintk, getting all the settings from DT, so you shouldn't
really need this any more unless you are debugging extremely early
startup code or the decompressor.
