set_termios() gets called once at init time and once each time a
caller requests a change in serial parameters. That's not usually
considered a hot path. I'm not suggesting you hide it in the register
methods but add ->set_termios as a method that can be overridden, plus
export the existing one so you can wrap it.

If you can't detect the chip then create yourself a u6715 driver file
which registers the ports you have and specifies the relevant
serial_in/out methods and other detail as well as containing the board
specific routines needed.

See arch/arm/mach-omap2/serial.c for a ARM example doing this, where all
the chip knowledge is nicely buried away in the platform support.
