Hi Andy,

Thank you for the review!. Major issue with PNP0501 is, it gets enumerated
in a different way which causes issue to get _DEP to work.
pnpacpi_init() creates PNP data structures which gets skipped if the
UART puts _DEP on the GSI provider (interrupt controller). In that case,
we need to somehow reinitialize such PNP devices after interrupt
controller gets probed. I tried a solution [1] but it required several
functions to be moved out of __init. 

This driver is not a duplicate of 8250_pnp. It just relies on UART
enumerated as platform device instead of using PNP interfaces.
Isn't it better and simple to have an option to enumerate as platform
device instead of PNP?
