I assume your uart_port's iotype is defined as UPIO_MEM32.
UPIO_MEM32 makes 8250 access serial registers using readl/writel (which might
be a problem for big-endian), while UPIO_MEM makes 8250 access the registers
using readb/writeb.
Maybe you should try UPIO_MEM (assuming hardware allows byte access).
