Doesn't seem to work for me, for any ttyS0 ttyS1 ttySAC1 device:

Box one, PCIe card + one USB dongle:
07:00.0 Serial controller: MosChip Semiconductor Technology Ltd. MCS9922 PCIe Multi-I/O Controller
07:00.1 Serial controller: MosChip Semiconductor Technology Ltd. MCS9922 PCIe Multi-I/O Controller
Bus 003 Device 004: ID 1a86:7523 QinHeng Electronics HL-340 USB-Serial adapter

/dev/serial/by-id/usb-1a86_USB2.0-Serial-if00-port0
/dev/serial/by-path/pci-0000:0b:00.3-usb-0:4:1.0-port0

Only ttyUSB0 is there.


Box two, on-board + one USB dongle:
[ 3.404340] Serial: 8250/16550 driver, 4 ports, IRQ sharing enabled
[ 3.431287] 00:01: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4, base_baud = 115200) is a 16550A
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 10c4:ea60 Cygnal Integrated Products, Inc. CP2102/CP2109 UART Bridge Controller [CP210x family]

/dev/serial/by-id/usb-Silicon_Labs_CP2104_USB_to_UART_Bridge_Controller_00DB1604-if00-port0
/dev/serial/by-path/pci-0000:00:14.0-usb-0:1:1.0-port0


Box three: RockPro64, euler + USB dongle, kernel 4.4.
Box four: Pine64, euler.
Box five: Odroid-U2, something GPIOish (ttySAC1), kernel 5.0.


Most are running kernel 5.2, Debian unstable.

And indeed, in /lib/udev/rules.d/60-serial.rules :
# /dev/serial/by-path/, /dev/serial/by-id/ for USB devices
KERNEL!="ttyUSB[0-9]*|ttyACM[0-9]*", GOTO="serial_end"


Like me, Paul is using ttyS0 for server-side.


Meow!
