The function tms570_sci_set_attributes() clears Tx enable interrupts and serial port core is never informed about final character transmission.

bsp/tms570: ensure that change of SCI baudrate is not applied in the middle of character Tx.

The rtems_monitor_task() setups/updates termios attributes
of the opened TTY and if there is ongoing some other output
it leads to the stuck.

It would be better to use some termios API function which
would call drainOutput() in rtems/cpukit/libcsupport/src/termios.c.
But functionality is not accessible outside of core termios

The loop waiting for last character to be sent has to be there anyway
because hardware does not provide Tx machine/shift register empty

Closes #2794
