We had a few reports coming in from people that had their autoboot chain
aborted after pinmuxing support was added for the RPi.
The culprit is easy: The UARTs may have been enabled before, but muxed
to an incorrect pin. That pin may have pulled the RX line down which again
lead to lots of zero bytes gathered in the RX buffer.
The easy fix for that is to drain the RX queue every time we set the baud
This patch set is the minimally intrusive fix for the RPi. We may want to
do that generically for all serial devices later.
