There are some UARTs that are 8250-compatible but not
ns16550-compatible. It would be better to stay as generic as possible to
support numerous UART.

Right :). We begin to have multiple platforms that are only supported in
one architecture (arm32 or arm64). So it's good time to introduce a way
to compile only supported platform.
