For the new readers, this is about


Greg already dropped it from his tty-testing tree. Thanks and sorry for
this second breakage. :-\

Urgs, this is ugly. Arch code uses a function from the 8250 driver
introduced in commit 9deaa53ac7fa ("serial: add irq handler for
Freescale 16550 errata.").

So the problematic case is SERIAL_8250=m which results in
fsl8250_handle_irq being in a module.

would work. The warning would trigger in cases where before the port
just silently used the default irq handler and so the FSL bug isn't
workarounded[1]. If the warning isn't wanted, it could be simplified to:

	if (of_device_is_compatible(np, "fsl,ns16550")) {

But I wonder if in the presence of

        if (IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_SERIAL_8250_FSL) &&
            (of_device_is_compatible(np, "fsl,ns16550") ||
             of_device_is_compatible(np, "fsl,16550-FIFO64"))) {
                port->handle_irq = fsl8250_handle_irq;
                port->has_sysrq = IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_SERIAL_8250_CONSOLE);

in of_platform_serial_setup() the code in
arch/powerpc/kernel/legacy_serial.c can just be dropped instead?!

Best regards

[1] Of course this won't happen because the help text of SERIAL_8250
clearly indicates that =m isn't a safe choice in the presence of
"non-standard serial ports". So the issue is purly theoretic.
