    make early serial console support more generic
    This patch makes pre-RAM serial init more generic, particularly for
    platforms which do not necessarily need cache-as-RAM in order to use
    the serial console and do not have a standard 8250 serial port.
    This adds a Kconfig variable to set romstage-* for very early serial
    console init. The current method assumes that cache-as-RAM should
    enable this, so to maintain compatibility selecting CACHE_AS_RAM will
    also select EARLY_SERIAL_CONSOLE.
    The UART code structure needs some rework, but the use of ROMCC,
    romstage, and then ramstage makes things complex.
    uart.h now includes all .h files for all uarts. All 2 of them.
    This is actually a simplifying change.
