Makes sense; that's a common way for attaching UARTs, and they are
normally described via ACPI. When you do that, I think it will show
up as ttyS4 (be sure you build with CONFIG_SERIAL_8250_PNP=y), so
you'll have to use "console=ttyS4" when you boot. ttyS0-ttyS3 are
taken by the hard-coded ports in serial.h, even though they may not
exist on your platform.
