You submitted a patch once to create a file with the same name,
but different intend, see

I can't tell if it was ever merged, but it doesn't look like it.
My driver is only meaningful for platforms that use the new style
of_platform_device autoprobing. It will make the serial ports
show up correctly in sysfs, even if they were not detected by
the legacy_serial code we use for 8250 style console ports. This
should be the same thing we do for 8250 PCI ports when the
8250_pci driver.
