Exactly I hate to introduce another driver which will be 99,9% the same
as an existing one and then we'll need to care of it as well.

Ok so I took a look at regmap in Linux kernel and indeed that
will solve our problem: we'll have a regmap-mmio.c and regmap-arcaux.c
with appropriate implementation of accessors but I'm not really sure
it worth the trouble. Or your idea was to move all the different #ifdefs from
serial_{in|out}_shift() to the corresponding regmap implementations such that
