As far as I understand, it is just to get a faster data transmission but I
have my doubts that it is worth to divert from the more common 115200 rate
just for this.

As you said though, it is a reality and also what mainline u-boot uses for
this device.

Same, I don't care either but just that would be good to make Linux and
u-boot to match. If this change will break other people setups, maybe I
can convince u-boot to sync with Linux and also use 115200 for the phone.
