I doubt it. That looks like a normal board-resident serial port,
esp. with the "on acpi0" notation (which suggests that it is part
of an ACPI-controlled device, and ACPI is ordinarily aware of only
motherboard devices). It's likely part of the "super-io" chip,
and it may possibly be connected to a 10-pin Berg header on the
motherboard (or it may not be connected to the outside world at
all). The motherboard manual, if available, might provide a clue.
