I disagree - the WARN(1) is certainly correct.

For 8250 the way to do that is to remove all the switches and port type
stuff and propogate to setting ->serial_in and ->serial_out rather than
splattering the code with ifdefs. At that point you'd have a "lib8250" or
similar and an 8250_io/pci driver.
