SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 3/3] serial: core: Allow skipping old serial port initialization

Sorry for being dense. What tree is this against? I can't find mention
of amdcz in Linus's tree nor linux-next.

Where does serial8250_skip_old_ports get used where CONFIG_SERIAL_8250
isn't defined? (i.e. why is the #ifdef needed here?)

Otherwise, sure, sounds good. :)
