This looks like you're just papering over the real issue, which is the
crazy idea of ultimately registering one driver per port:

https://lkml.kernel.org/r/1539685088-13465-1-git-send-email-shubhrajyoti.datta@gmail.com

It appears only the preparatory patches from that series were applied,
and I think whoever is responsible should consider reverting those
instead.

If the statically allocated port state is that big of any issue, you
need to make serial core support dynamic allocation.
