Thank you, I will change it.

You are right, if the argument 'name' is longer than just "pl011" it
will wrongly match. But note that it's always just name of the console
without ',' and parameters that is passed in the 'name' argument. So I
think we should just use strcmp() here.

BTW, the function univ8250_console_match() from
drivers/tty/serial/8250/8250_core.c probably has the same issue.

Thank you
