Nice, yes, that makes things a bit cleaner.

yep.

To me serial8250_config is about serial port geometries, uart_port ops
are about quirks. Once open firmware needs to deal with a serial port
with a standard geometry but with a runtime quirk this approach of
just looking at the type will need to be revisited. The fact that
'PORT_TEGRA' is enough to identify the geometry and the quirk is
serendipitous.

The entire file should go away since it is only there to export
tegra_serial_handle_break to the deprecated board files. Once this is
open firmware only tegra_serial_handle_break can be marked static,
right?
