Re: [PATCH 1/3] serial/imx: add device tree support

Ah, we're having an impedance mismatch. I'm thinking specifically
about the device tree compiler and some syntactic sugar for using the
label definition to generate /also/ create alias properties. The
hairiness is related to that and the way that dtc is implemented, not
with the final aliases themselves.

You can generate DTC-style aliases from OFW-style aliases instead (or
as well), it has other advantages (like being more readable, and having
the aliases grouped together).
