James,

I tested tested the code you proposed (cleaned up to avoid magic
numbers) on my hardware and it works fine.

                        writeb(value, p->membase + (UART_LCR << p->regshift));

                while (tries--) {

                        writel(value, p->membase + (UART_LCR << p->regshift));


Would you mind posting this for proper review so we can get the fix in?

Thanks,

Applying this change fixes all the problems I reported (just did a quick test on
the board I have currently on my desk).

Nice work!

Thanks for testing it.

I've posted Tim's version for proper review with both your tested-by.
