Which make me think that this series needs an additional patch to
describe RS485 enumeration for ACPI case (somewhere in
Documentation/firmware-guide/acpi/enumeration.rst IIRC the filename).

What to do in the case when DE pin is muxed to RTS and locked in pin control
IP by firmware (no possibility to change the muxing in the OS)?
