SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/2 v9] serial: mctrl_gpio: Check if GPIO property exisits before requesting it
CC gpio

This is now commit d99482673f950817 ("serial: mctrl_gpio: Check if GPIO
property exisits before requesting it") in tty-next.

This will silently break DTBs using "(cts|dsr|dcd|rng|rts|dtr)-gpio" instead
of "(cts|dsr|dcd|rng|rts|dtr)-gpios".
