The latter, especially that switches will appear quite a lot in such

However this pattern (== IRQ_DISCRETE) appears only in three places so
it should not be the main case considered here.

However I saw later you actually replaced the
s3c24xx_serial_has_interrupt_mask(), so it's not that bad.

In most of your code, there will be actually a switch with all three

Looking at Greg's comment, we can get rid of the PORT_ stuff entirely.
First of all, PORT_S3C2410 == PORT_S3C2412, so this define is not

This leaves us with three types (s3c2400, s3c2440, s3c6410 and Apple).
The s3c2440 could be removed with adding a new "ucon_mask" field to

This would end with s3c24xx, s3c6410 and Apple - quite nice choice.

You're right. This one would have to be improved before your change.
Instead of replacing specific op calls in startup, I think it's better
to have entirely separate ops instance for each variant:

static const struct uart_ops s3c24xx_serial_ops;
static const struct uart_ops s3c64xx_serial_ops;
static const struct uart_ops s5l_serial_ops;

This allows to add a "const", since uart_port takes such const pointer.

Still during s3c24xx_serial_probe() correct ops would have to be
assigned, but at least all ops are easily visible.

Best regards,
