serial: 8250_bcm7271: UART errors after resuming from S2

There is a small window in time during resume where the hardware
flow control signal RTS can be asserted (which allows a sender to
resume sending data to the UART) but the baud rate has not yet
been restored. This will cause corrupted data and FRAMING, OVERRUN
and BREAK errors. This is happening because the MCTRL register is
shadowed in uart_port struct and is later used during resume to set
the MCTRL register during both serial8250_do_startup() and
uart_resume_port(). Unfortunately, serial8250_do_startup()
happens before the UART baud rate is restored. The fix is to clear
the shadowed mctrl value at the end of suspend and restore it at the
end of resume.
