Bug Description

[Impact]
The Marvell MacchiatoBin community board fails to boot with Ubuntu 17.04 due to a crash in the Fintek 8250 driver.

[Test Case]
Boot Ubuntu 17.04 on a Marvell MacchiatoBin board in UEFI/ACPI mode, check for crash.

[Regression Risk]
Fix looks straightforward to me - it avoids probing a PIO-only driver if the port is non-PIO, thus avoiding a crash on platforms where native PIO is unsupported. The fix is upstream and CC'd for stable, so there should be upstream support for any regressions it were to cause.

This bug is missing log files that will aid in diagnosing the problem. From a terminal window please run:

apport-collect 1692548

and then change the status of the bug to 'Confirmed'.

If, due to the nature of the issue you have encountered, you are unable to run this command, please add a comment stating that fact and change the bug status to 'Confirmed'.

This change has been made by an automated script, maintained by the Ubuntu Kernel Team.

For the record, DT boot is equally affected, even though the fix mentions ACPI _HIDs etc

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-zesty' to 'verification-done-zesty'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-zesty' to 'verification-failed-zesty'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
