For patch 1, I'm not to keen on the:

+#ifdef CONFIG_AVR32
+ port->flags |= UPF_IOREMAP;
+ port->membase = ioremap(pdev->resource[0].start,
+ pdev->resource[0].end
+ - pdev->resource[0].start + 1);

part. It might be better to pass a flag (in the platform_data
structure) whether we are providing a virtual or a physical address.
(If you want early init on the serial console, then I recommend just
using a static mapping for the DBGU peripheral).

Patch 2 & 3 look correct, but they would need to be tested.
