In fact that's *exactly* why peripheral naming needs ultimately should be a per-board decision in the BSP (possibly expressed via DT). Note that this does *not* mean that SoC-wide defaults are bad. SoC-wide defaults are great and simplify things for uses of sane or simple board designs.
So opening "DB9-1" might fail if the jumpers areBoards like this are rare and the BSP still has the option to call it whatever is neccessary to disambiguate.
