I don't know what exactly has changed, as I have not investigated it
deeply. I think that CONFIG_SERIAL_8250_OMAP_TTYO_FIXUP changed the
behavior a little bit, so now there are only ttySx devices, with no
ttyOx anymore. Another possibility is that ttyO0 was created in older
kernel versions, because it was passed by u-boot directly as boot
argument to kernel.
