Ideally, you would use of_platform_default_populate here. I think
you'd have to add a compatible to the child nodes, but that wouldn't
be a bad thing. I could envision that the child nodes ultimately
become their own driver utilizing the standard 8250 driver and a
compatible string would be needed in that case.

You'd then have to loop over each child of 'dev' instead of the DT nodes.
