	help
	  This option enables the NS16550 serial driver.
	  This driver can be used for the serial hardware
	  available on x86 boards.

	  In some case, e.g. ARC HS Development kit, the peripheral space of ns
	  16550 (DesignWare UART) only allows word access, byte access will raise
	  exception.

config UART_NS16550_WA_ISR_REENABLE_INTERRUPT
	bool "Re-enable interrupts by toggling IER at end of ISR"
	depends on UART_INTERRUPT_DRIVEN
	help
	  In some configurations (e.g. edge interrupt triggers),
	  an interruptible event occurs during ISR and the host interrupt
	  controller does not see the new event due to IIR is constantly
	  asserting interrupts. For example, the callback handles RX and
	  then TX. If another character comes in before end of TX processing
	  (TX interrupt still asserts while raising RX interrupt), the host
	  interrupt controller may not see this new event. So if needed,
	  the IER is being toggled to re-assert interrupts at the end of ISR
	  to nudge the host interrupt controller to fire the ISR again.
