Subject[PATCH V1 1/1] serial: 8250_fintek: Fix garbled text for console
Commit fab8a02b73eb ("serial: 8250_fintek: Enable high speed mode on Fintek F81866")
introduced support to use high baudrate with Fintek SuperIO UARTs. It'll
change clocksources when the UART probed.

But when user add kernel parameter "console=ttyS0,115200 console=tty0" to make
the UART as console output, the console will output garbled text after the
following kernel message.

[ 3.681188] Serial: 8250/16550 driver, 32 ports, IRQ sharing enabled

The issue is occurs in following step:
probe_setup_port() -> fintek_8250_goto_highspeed()

It change clocksource from 115200 to 921600 with wrong time, it should change
clocksource in set_termios() not in probed. The following 3 patches are
implemented change clocksource in fintek_8250_set_termios().

Commit 58178914ae5b ("serial: 8250_fintek: UART dynamic clocksource on Fintek F81216H")
Commit 195638b6d44f ("serial: 8250_fintek: UART dynamic clocksource on Fintek F81866")
Commit 423d9118c624 ("serial: 8250_fintek: Add F81966 Support")

Due to the high baud rate had implemented above 3 patches and the patch
Commit fab8a02b73eb ("serial: 8250_fintek: Enable high speed mode on Fintek F81866")
is bugged, So this patch will remove it.

Fixes: fab8a02b73eb ("serial: 8250_fintek: Enable high speed mode on Fintek F81866")
