This patchset enhances the definition of the Device Feature Header (DFH) used by
the Device Feature List (DFL) bus and then uses the new enhancements in a UART

The enhancements to the DFH includes the introduction of parameter blocks.
Like PCI capabilities, the DFH parameter blocks further describe
the hardware to software. In the case of the UART, the parameter blocks
provide information for the interrupt, clock frequency, and register layout.

Duplication of code parsing of the parameter blocks in multiple DFL drivers
is a concern. Using swnodes was considered to help minimize parsing code 
duplication, but their use did not help the problem. Furthermore the highly
changeable nature of FPGAs employing the DFL bus makes the use of swnodes

Patch 1 updates the DFL documentation to describe the added functionality to DFH.

Patch 2 adds the definitions for DFHv1.

Patch 3 adds basic support for DFHv1. It adds functionality to parse parameter blocks
and adds the functionality to parse the explicit location of a feature's register set.

Patch 4 adds a DFL UART driver that makes use of the new features of DFHv1.
