The atmel_serial driver is mismanaging its clock by leaving it on
at all times ... the whole point of clock management is to leave
it off unless it's actively needed, which conserves power!!

Although the kernel doesn't actually hang without my fix, it does
discard quite a lot of early console output.

The result still looks correct:

usart users= 1 on 35000000 Hz, for atmel_usart.0
usart users= 0 off 35000000 Hz, for atmel_usart.2

when using ttyS0 as serial console.
