Subject: [edk2-devel] [Patch 1/1] MdeModulePkg/PciSioSerialDxe: Flush Tx
before config change

https://bugzilla.tianocore.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3114

Add logic to flush all UART transmit buffers if there is a config change from
Reset(), SetAttributes() or SetControl().
Use a timeout in the flush operation, so the system can continue to boot if
the transmit buffers can not be flushed for any reason.

This change prevents lost characters on serial debug logs and serial consoles
when a config change is made. It also prevents a UART from getting into a
bad state or reporting error status due to characters being transmitted at the
same time registers are updated with new communications settings.
