staging: greybus: uart: clean up TIOCGSERIAL
TIOCSSERIAL is a horrid, underspecified, legacy interface which for most serial devices is only useful for setting the close_delay and closing_wait parameters. The xmit_fifo_size parameter could be used to set the hardware transmit fifo size of a legacy UART when it could not be detected, but the interface is limited to eight bits and should be left unset when not used. Similarly, baud_base could be used to set the UART base clock when it could not be detected but might as well be left unset when it is not known. The type parameter could be used to set the UART type, but is better left unspecified (type unknown) when it isn't used. Note that some applications have historically expected TIOCGSERIAL to be implemented, but judging from the Debian sources, the port type not being PORT_UNKNOWN is only used to check for the existence of legacy serial ports (ttySn). Notably USB serial drivers like ftdi_sio have been using PORT_UNKNOWN for twenty years without any problems. Drop the bogus values provided by the greybus implementation.
