Subject[PATCH] serdev: Don't claim unsupported serial devices
Serdev sub-system claims all serial devices that are not already
enumerated. As a result, no device node is created for serial port on
certain boards such as the Apollo Lake based UP2. This has the
unintended consequence of not being able to raise the login prompt via
serial connection.

Introduce a blacklist to reject devices that should not be treated as
a serdev device. Add the Intel HS UART peripheral ids to the blacklist
to bring back serial port on SoCs carrying them.

The patch has been updated based on feedback recieved on the RFC[0].

Please consider merging if there are no objections.
