x86, earlyprintk: Add earlyprintk for Intel Moorestown platform
Intel Moorestown platform has a spi-uart device(Maxim3110), which connects to a Designware spi core controller. This patch will add early console function based on it. As it will be used long before Linux spi subsystem get initialised, we simply directly manipulate the spi controller's register to acheive the early console func. This is safe as it will be disabled when devices subsytem get initialised. To use it, user need enable CONFIG_X86_MRST_EARLY_PRINTK in kenrel config and add "earlyprintk=mrst" in kernel command line.
