From: Dirk Behme <dirk.behme@de.bosch.com>

Looking at the get_poll_char() function of the 8250.c serial driver,
we learn:

* poll_get_char() doesn't have to save/disable/restore the interrupt
  registers. No interrupt handling is needed in this function at all.
  Remove it.

* Don't block in case there is no data available. So instead blocking
  in the do {} while loop, just return with NO_POLL_CHAR, immediately .

Additionally, while the i.MX6 register URXD[7-0] contain the RX_DATA,
the upper bits of this register (URXD[15-10]) might contain some
control flags. To ensure that these are not returned with the data
read, just mask out URXD[7-0].

These changes fix the 'hang' working with kdb:

$ echo ttymxc3 > /sys/module/kgdboc/parameters/kgdboc
$ echo g >/proc/sysrq-trigger
[0]kdb> help
...
<hang>
