There should be a warning at compile time about mismatching parameters.

The function call in the etraxfs-uart driver was not renamed,
possibly due to interference with commit 7b9c5162c182 ("serial:
etraxfs-uart: use mctrl_gpio helpers for handling modem signals").

Yes. BTW, 7b9c5162c182 looks broken, too, because the interrupt handling
is missing.

I can not comment on that; all I can say is that it works for me with qemu.
