Does this really work? I also tried to get it working recently and
the system just hung on boot. Looking at it with a JTAG debugger
showed that the bcm2835aux registers were inaccessible because
the mini UART wasn't enabled in the AUXENB register.

Maybe if you use OF_EARLYCON_DECLARE, the firmware recognizes that
serial1 is set as stdout-path and performs enablement of the mini UART?
Or are you using U-Boot which perhaps does the enablement?

I also saw in the JTAG debugger that the uartclk member contained
an incorrect value, so I'd expect that it has to be set as well in
early_bcm2835aux_setup().

I'll see to it that I give this patch a whirl when I return to the
office next week.

Thanks,

Lukas
