There are multiple memory mapped UARTs on at least the one chip I am aware
of, specifying the address here chooses which port to use as the early
console.

In fact, the recommended way is to have firmware specify an ACPI SPCR table
with OEMID="AMDCZ " (see https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/10281307/) to
configure proper access and address. With an SPCR table in place, the
kernel command line just becomes "earlycon", with no parameters.
