Subject[PATCH] serdev: Don't claim unsupported ACPI serial devices
Serdev sub-system claims all ACPI serial devices that are not already
initialised. As a result, no device node is created for serial ports
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 ACPI serial devices that should not be
claimed by serdev sub-system. Add the peripheral ids for Intel HS UART
to the blacklist to bring back serial port on SoCs carrying them.

Hi Greg,

I've updated the patch to tighten the commit log and code identifier
to be more ACPI specific.



* Update commit log to refer to ACPI serial devices
* Update identifier to be ACPI specific
* Space around peripheral Ids
