Subject: [PATCH] tty: serial: msm_serial: Use DT aliases

We rely on probe order of this driver to determine the line number for
the uart port. This makes it impossible to know the line number
when these devices are populated via DT. Use the DT alias
mechanism to assign the line based on the aliases node.
