Subject: [PATCH 4.19 219/321] serial: 8250: Fix serial8250 initialization crash

From: He Zhe <zhe.he@...driver.com>

[ Upstream commit 352c4cf40c4a7d439fa5d30aa2160f54b394da82 ]

The initialization code of interrupt backoff work might reference NULL
pointer and cause the following crash, if no port was found.

[   10.017727] CPU 0 Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address 000001b0, epc == 807088e0, ra == 8070863c

This patch makes sure the initialization code can be reached only if a port
is found.
