True. That is what the public documentation for Atom Z8000
(Cherrytrail/Braswell), and also Z36xx-Z37xx (Baytrail) say. The
internal Lynxpoint PCH documentation I used describe the bit
differently, but we should of course follow the public documentation.
The LPSS block housing the UART is in any case the same in all these

After addressing Andy's comments:

This should also go to stable.
