Subject: [PATCH V2] serial/uart: Add tunable RX interrupt trigger I/F of
 FIFO buffers

Add tunable RX interrupt trigger I/F of FIFO buffers.
Serial devices are used as not only message communication devices but control
or sending communication devices. For the latter uses, normally small data
will be exchanged, so user applications want to receive data unit as soon as
possible for real-time tendency. If we have a sensor which sends a 1 byte data
each time and must control a device based on the sensor feedback, the RX
interrupt should be triggered for each data.

According to HW specification of serial UART devices, RX interrupt trigger
can be changed, but the trigger is hard-coded. For example, RX interrupt trigger
in 16550A can be set to 1, 4, 8, or 14 bytes for HW, but current driver sets
the trigger to only 8bytes.

This patch makes a 16550A device change RX interrupt trigger from userland.

<How to use>
unsigned char rx_trig_byte = 1;
fd = open(TTY_PASS, O_RDWR | O_NONBLOCK);
ioctl(fd, TIOCSFIFOTRIG, rx_trig_byte);
read(fd, buf, size);

<Support uart device>
- 16550A (1, 4, 8, or 14 bytes)

Changed in V2:
 - Use _IOW for TIOCSFIFORTRIG definition
 - Pass the interrupt trigger value itself
