    xen/arm: initialize vpl011 flag register
    The tx/rx fifo flags were not set when the vpl011 is initialized. This
    is a problem for certain guests that are operating in polled mode, as a
    guest will generally check the rx fifo empty flag to determine if there
    is data before doing a read. The result is a continuous spam of the
    message "vpl011: Unexpected IN ring buffer empty" before the first valid
    character is received. This initializes the flag status register to the
    default specified in the PL011 technical reference manual.
