Looks like this patcheset cause regression:
when set grub console to 115200, and later kernel only have


the kernel will revert baud rate to 9600 instead of keeping 115200.

in setup_earlycon: you say:

* Registers the earlycon console matching the earlycon specified
* in the param string @buf. Acceptable param strings are of the form
* <name>,io|mmio|mmio32,<addr>,<options>
* <name>,0x<addr>,<options>
* <name>,<options>
* <name>
* Only for the third form does the earlycon setup() method receive the
* <options> string in the 'options' parameter; all other forms set
* the parameter to NULL.

so that change the old behavior that we defined in

Start an early, polled-mode console on the 8250/16550
UART at the specified I/O port or MMIO address.
MMIO inter-register address stride is either 8-bit
(mmio) or 32-bit (mmio32).
The options are the same as for ttyS, above.

The old behavior: options is optional , and will use baud rate that is
set by bootloader.

Please fix the problem and restore to old behavior.
