It is also used to flash stuff to this co-processor using bsl. Thus, it should be possible to disable it with an overlay and show it as a normal ttyS* device. Currently, the beagle kernel uses the following dts .

I haven't checked your links, but from your description, serdev might be what
you're after. In the DT that would be a child node of the existing serial

Not sure about the uart suffix. beagle,play-cc1352 sounds fine for a v1, I think.

Only if the cc1352 is itself a UART adapter, which doesn't appear to be the case.
Look what the function of the device has and choose the appropriate directory.
For coprocessors that have multiple functions, the main node is described
in mfd/ and the different functions in their respective directories.

Just take a similar device as a template. See what's already in mfd/
and see what's similar to your usage.
