Hi Lukas,

Thanks for the patch!

MACH_REALTEK_RTL doesn't actually call setup_8250_early_printk_port(). That means
USE_GENERIC_EARLY_PRINTK_8250 is also not needed. Being MIPS_GENERIC, that additionaly
means SYS_HAS_EARLY_PRINTK doesn't need to be selected.

I only recently found the MIPS_GENERIC "early" console therefore doesn't actually work,
but we use the "ns16550a" earlycon console instead. So feel free to also drop the other
two other EARLY_PRINTK symbols, if you think this is in-scope for this patch. Otherwise I
can submit a separate patch later.

In any case:
Acked-by: Sander Vanheule <sander@svanheule.net>


Best,
Sander
