Subject[PATCH v4 1/6] serial: 8250: Store to lsr_save_flags after lsr read
Not all LSR register flags are preserved across reads. Therefore, LSR
readers must store the non-preserved bits into lsr_save_flags.

This fix was initially mixed into feature commit f6f586102add ("serial:
8250: Handle UART without interrupt on TEMT using em485"). However,
that feature change had a flaw and it was reverted to make room for
simpler approach providing the same feature. The embedded fix got
reverted with the feature change.

Re-add the lsr_save_flags fix and properly mark it's a fix.
