Subject: [PATCH 07/15] powerpc/powernv: move opal console flushing to udbg
Date: Tue,  1 May 2018 00:55:50 +1000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20180430145558.4308-8-npiggin@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20180430145558.4308-1-npiggin@gmail.com>

OPAL console writes do not have to synchronously flush firmware /
hardware buffers unless they are going through the udbg path.

Remove the unconditional flushing from opal_put_chars. Flush if
there was no space in the buffer as an optimisation (callers loop
waiting for success in that case). udbg flushing is moved to
udbg_opal_putc.
