Hmm, an interesting observation: When I boot with this patch on a
7044-270, it also finds 4 serial ports. One of them is the tablet port
(which is a serial port). I suppose there is be hardware for 4 ports, but
only 2+1 actually have connectors.

This brings a bit more urgency to doing the "nice" fix: Looking at the
device tree to find the serial ports, and patch the table early in the
boot. Detecting them doesn't do much harm, but it's misleading.
