What tree did you make this against?

It fails with:
patching file drivers/tty/serial/8250/8250.c
patching file drivers/tty/serial/8250/8250.h
patching file drivers/tty/serial/8250/8250_pci.c
Hunk #2 FAILED at 1093.
1 out of 2 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to file drivers/tty/serial/8250/8250_pci.c.rej

While that file hasn't been changed since it was moved to that location.

Any ideas?

Because of this, I've only applied your first patch in this series, not
the last two.
