Hi Marcel,

Looks to be ttyAMA0

[ 4.480469] 3f201000.serial: ttyAMA0 at MMIO 0x3f201000 (irq = 72,
base_baud = 0) is a PL011 rev2
[ 4.497401] serial serial0: tty port ttyAMA0 registered

With 4.14 I get the following, the address doesn't look right, do you
have a link to the serdev patch headed to 4.15?
