The DT settings relevant for ARC, which enable generic-earlycon and
console-with-stdout-path are as follows

        chosen {
                bootargs = "earlycon";
                stdout-path = &arcuart0;
        };

....
                arcuart0: serial@...c1000 {
                        compatible = "snps,arc-uart";

And it works w/o above hunk, provided the 2 patches from Grant exist in linux-next
which they don't at the moment. I'm pretty confused how the hunk above comes into
picture.

And if not then I will have to get the ARC std-out patch reverted in tty-next as
it is broken.

Thx,
-Vineet
