Subject[PATCH v4 3/6] serial: 8250: Get preserved flags using serial_lsr_in()
serial8250_handle_irq() assumes it's the first to read LSR register.
However, there are 8250 drivers which perform LSR read in their own irq
handler prior to calling serial8250_handle_irq(). As not all flags are
preserved across LSR reads, use serial_lsr_in() helper to get all the
preserved flags.

This commit might fix other commits too besides the ones for DW UART
mentioned below. It's just not clear to me which of the other devices
clear some of the LSR flags on read. AFAIK, nobody has complained about
this problem (either against DW or other devices) so it might not have
that bad impact in the end.

Fixes: 424d79183af0 ("serial: 8250_dw: Avoid "too much work" from bogus rx timeout interrupt")
Fixes: aa63d786cea2 ("serial: 8250: dw: Add support for DMA flow controlling devices")
