Hi Xuerui,

Thanks for your suggestion.

We can not use the serial console without this patch,
so I use the current patch subject.

Anyway, let me modify the patch subject to make it more accurate,
I think the following is better:
"MIPS: Loongson: Enable devicetree based probing for 8250 ports"

drivers/tty/serial/8250/Kconfig:
config SERIAL_OF_PLATFORM
         tristate "Devicetree based probing for 8250 ports"

I will send v2 later.

Thanks,
Tiezhu Yang
