Nit: Would be better to have them aligned.

The different pinctrl states looks like a neat solution to the problem.

My only concern here is that 'default' state is implying a hw-flow-control
pinmux config, and manual-rts is implying what is the current upstream
'default' pinmux config.

Which maybe ok if you update all uarts, but currently only serial0
is updated. So the other uarts current 'default' is actually the same as serial0
'manual-rts' grouping, which conceptually is odd.

Would it not be better to make 'manual-rts' the default state? As that aligns
to what is currently already the default for the other UARTS? And then make
hw-flow-control the optional state for serial0?

That also has the advantage that 'default' has the same meaning with older DT's.

regards,

Peter.
