    This still seems much to invasive.

    Again, what's wrong with simply keeping the quirk implementation where
    it is, and driving everything off the already-extant
    plat_serial8250_port.type == PORT_TEGRA flag?

    I believe all that's required here is to enhance struct struct
    serial8250_config (and hence 8250.c's uart_config[] quirk table) to be
    able to set the quirk function pointers as well as all the other exiting
    quirked variables.
