While experimenting with rs485 configuration on a SC16IS752 dual UART,
I found that the sc16is7xx_config_rs485() function was called only for
the second port (index 1, channel B), causing initialization problems
for the first port.

For the sc16is7xx driver, port->membase and port->mapbase are not set,
and their default values are 0. And we set port->iobase to the device
index. This means that when the first device is registered using the
uart_add_one_port() function, the following values will be in the port
    port->membase = 0
    port->mapbase = 0
    port->iobase  = 0

Therefore, the function uart_configure_port() in serial_core.c will
exit early because of the following check:
	 * If there isn't a port here, don't do anything further.
	if (!port->iobase && !port->mapbase && !port->membase)

Typically, I2C and SPI drivers do not set port->membase and
port->mapbase. But I found that the max310x driver sets
port->membase to ~0 (all ones). By implementing the same change in our
driver, uart_configure_port() is now correctly executed.

I am not sure if this change is the best long-term solution to this
problem, and maybe uart_configure_port() itself could be modified to
take into account the fact that some devices have all three *base
values set to zero?

Also, many drivers use port->iobase as an index, is it the correct way
to use it?

For example, for our driver, there was
commit 5da6b1c079e6 ("sc16is7xx: Set iobase to device index") with the
following explanation:
    "Set the .iobase value to the relative index within the device to allow
    infering the order through sysfs."
