SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/3] serial/imx: add device tree support
I wonder if it makes sense to create a new device node "/linux-devices" to express a desired mapping from device nodes to /dev entries?  The properties could be the names of device special files and the values the corresponding node phandles.
