This patch has just landed in linux-next 20200326. Sadly it breaks
booting of the Raspberry Pi3b and Pi4 boards, either in 32bit or 64bit
mode. There is no warning nor panic message, just a silent freeze. The
last message shown on the earlycon is:

[    0.893217] Serial: 8250/16550 driver, 1 ports, IRQ sharing enabled
