FWIW, the PL011 serial code has been copied from the Linux drivers.

Linux interrupt handler also clear all interrupts except TX, RX, RX
timeout. So do you see the issue on Linux?

This changes looks wrong to me. We want to clear the bit in status we
don't handle. Otherwise the interrupt will be fired in loop.

If I'm not mistaken, TXI/RTI/RXI will be cleared when data is read or
write into the fifo. So we should not clear automatically.
