I am not related to the device vendor in any way, so please take my answers for what they are worth.

It seems that there is not enough pins to properly connect the chips to the memory bus and just you the standard 8250 UART driver. Instead, clock divisor is set using this register.

So, if you know you're asking for (115200) you get it. If you don't or guess (115201), you get the default 9600.

This is a policy, it may not be the right way to write a driver, but it is cheap and it works.
