Same comments as for the SoC changes. Note that in general, enabling
'earlyprintk' in the dts is a bad idea because it breaks booting a
kernel that has an incompatible debug_ll setting enabled, I'd rather
see you drop that patch.

Starting with 3.19, the shiny new 'earlycon' support should work, so
I'd prefer you to set the 'stdout-path' property in the /chosen
node. Unfortunately enabling earlycon at the command line is still
broken on 3.18-rc because the fixmap patches are only in Russell's
'ronx-next' branch. We could think about pulling that into arm-soc
if we want to start enabling earlycon drivers.
