The chips themselves are standard, they would work with 8250_core if
properly connected. However, they are not connected normally. Al least
some of their config pins are wired to a different address region. So
the driver is board-specific.

'x' wildcards in the name of the board seem important. There are devices
made by the same vendor without 8 or 4 in their name. Those devices
either are not shipped with linux or are base on a x86 platform.

Does this justify the choice of the compatible string?

ok
