Well, there is no problem with naming your device nodes in the filesystem
however you like and the only place that only cares is the "console="
command line option. I think the root is ttyS devices should really be
only used for 8250-based devices and if you plug a standard PC serial
option card into one of the PCI slots, then all the hell will break loose.
I might be wrong though and the issue I am referring to may have gone now.
