    I don't think this is a good idea. Aside from the bug that you introduce
    (you can no longer have multiple ports of the same type because of overwrite
    the static info->line number), it seems an unnecessary complication.
    Either just add the quirk to the of_serial file based on the compatible value,
    or do a trivial new driver that has a subset of the existing one you need,
    plus the quirk.
