bug in PL011 console

Hello,

since mxs switched to amba-pl011 I often hit warnings like this:

Steven told me on irc that sleeping was not allowed in the console write
callback.  Maybe this didn't show up earlier because not all clk
implementations sleep as mxs' does.

I think the only possible fix is to do the clk_enable in the setup
callback instead of per-write.

Will send a patch as follow up.

Best regards
Uwe
