Yes, I skipped UART setup same as msm_serial.c and amba-pl011.c
(although they are standalone serial driver). Just like earlyprintk, I
think earlycon should reuse UART setting in loader. Since some other
platforms with 8250 already depend on this, it's ok to add flags to
distinguish whether 8250 earlycon driver should init hw or not. As you
said, add "noinit" flag is simple, but "stdout-path-initialized" need
more discussion.

The reason is only static. I want to keep 8250_early.c untouchable, all
modifications in 8250_mtk.c
