Dario, there seems to be a misunderstanding about the Device Tree.

It is used *only* for hardware that is permanently attached, present at
boot, and forever after. Not for dyamically added stuff, and definitely
not for ldiscs that have to be attached manually by the user.


The only exception to this is if you have an embedded device with an
slcan adapter permanently attached to one of its UARTs. Then you can
use the serdev ldisc adapter to attach the ldisc automatically at boot.

If you are actively developing for such a use case, please let us know,
so we know what you're after and can help you better :)
