tryed to build efb8d21 with at91cap9adk_defconfig + DT + 8250 but it fails:

drivers/tty/serial/atmel_serial.c: In function 'atmel_serial_probe':
drivers/tty/serial/atmel_serial.c:1788:3: error: implicit declaration of function 'of_alias_get_id' [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]
drivers/tty/serial/atmel_serial.c: At top level:
drivers/tty/serial/atmel_serial.c:1893:3: error: implicit declaration of function 'of_match_ptr' [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]
drivers/tty/serial/atmel_serial.c:1893:3: error: initializer element is not constant
drivers/tty/serial/atmel_serial.c:1893:3: error: (near initialization for 'atmel_serial_driver.driver.of_match_table')
cc1: some warnings being treated as errors

there is not mention of such (new) of_match_ptr macro anywhere in Linus' tree.
