Ok I poked into the git logs (thanks Bryan). It was first introduced in
bcc0f6a ([ARM] msm: clean up iomap and devices, 2008-09-10). It seems
that debug_ll support on MSM at the time had to remove the virtual
mapping for the uart base. Thus when the MMU was enabled the addruart
macro returned 0 and the senduart macro would test for 0 so that
senduart could disable debug_ll when the MMU was enabled. Something
about "problems with the peripheral window".

Later on, the virtual mapping was added back in 6339f66 (msm: make
debugging UART (for DEBUG_LL) configurable, 2009-11-02) but the patch
forgot to remove the teq. So as it stands the teq has been useless for
two years.
