This patch addss the device-tree documentation for Freescale's
NS16550 UART (also called DUART).

There is a specific errata fix required in FSL NS16550 UART
which ensures that an random interrupt storm is not observed when
a break is provided as an input to the UART.

+  Freescale DUART is very similar to the PC16552D (and to a
+  pair of NS16550A), albeit with some nonstandard behavior such as
+  erratum A-004737 (relating to incorrect BRK handling).
+  Represents a single port that is compatible with the DUART found
+  on many Freescale chips (examples include mpc8349, mpc8548,
+  mpc8641d, p4080 and ls2085a).
