The patch in current state will probably break Exynos Auto v9 boards,
including the in-tree one, unless bootloader sets the USI to serial. The
trouble is that. Changing the Exynos Auto v9 DTSI in these series would
solve it only partially, because the kernel still won't be bisectable.

Breaking Auto v9 serial within a kernel is okay for me, because the
board was added recently, I don't expect products using it and it is
still development phase. This of course assuming that it's users agree,
so the question is to Chanho and other folks.

Best regards,
