Leo Yan May 5, 2015, 3 a.m.
When use pio mode, there have two issues can be observed:

- In the commit 2240197 "serial/amba-pl011: Leave the TX IRQ alone when
  the UART is not open", it will skip clearing the TX IRQ across
  pl011_shutdown() and pl011_startup(); So at the next time after the
  uart port has been opened, there have chance for the function
  pl011_tx_chars() will not be executed if the TX IRQ will not be
  triggered; finally the console cannot output anymore.

  This is caused by the uart FIFO still keep data rather than
  the threshold. So revert this patch to make sure every time open the
  uart port, it will force to call function pl011_tx_chars().

- Sometimes will output the duplicate chars. Function pl011_tx_char()
  will firstly send char and check if FIFO is full, and if the FIFO is
  full it will return false; Caller function will consider the char
  has _NOT_ been send out and resend it again, finally will send the
  duplicate chars. So change to check FIFO is full or not, if full then
  return false, otherwise send out char and return true.

I was going to comment that this patch should probably be split into two 
patches...

However whilst doing background reading I noticed that for both these 
issues there are existing patches to address them:

http://lists.infradead.org/pipermail/linux-arm-kernel/2015-March/334107.html

Do these fix the issues for you?

Tested w/t your two patches, it can fix issues quite well;
Also will back port them into local branch. Thanks u and Daniel
pointing out this.
