Ok, I'll address it.

ok. i see. I'll convert it to ttyS in the next version.

Question:
1. there are 4 uart ports configured in dt for sprd_serial, so probe
will be called 4 times, but uart_register_driver only needs to be
called one time, so can we use uart_driver.state to check if
uart_register_driver has already been called ?

2. if I use module_platform_driver() instead of
module_init(sprd_serial_init) and module_exit(sprd_serial_exit) , I
must move uart_unregister_driver() which is now processed in
sprd_serial_exit() to sprd_remove(), there is a similar problem with
probe(), sprd_remove() will also be called 4 times, and actually it
should be called only one time. How can we deal with this case?

3. for the second question, we can check the platform_device->id, if
it is equal to the index of last port (e.g. 4 for this case), then
uart_unregister_driver() can be called. Does it work correctly? since
for this case, we must keep the order of releasing ports.


Thanks,
Chunyan
