Subject: [PATCH 35/41] drivers: tty: serial: 8250: add mapsize to platform data

Adding a mapsize field for the 8250 port platform data struct,
so we can now set the resource size (eg. *1) and don't need
funny runtime detections like serial8250_port_size() anymore.

For now, serial8250_port_size() is called everytime we need
the io resource size. That function checks which chip we
actually have and returns the appropriate size. This approach
is a bit clumpsy and not entirely easy to understand, and
it's a violation of layers :p

Obviously, that information cannot change after the driver init,
so we can safely do that probing once on driver init and just
use the stored value later.

*1) arch/mips/alchemy/common/platform.c
