Something that might be doable is to read the pin settings for the
uart in question in omap_serial_init. And then bail out for that
port if the rx or tx pin is not already muxed to uart in question.
Only if the rx and tx pin is muxed for uart, then you can enable
the wake-up events.

So basically doing remuxing in serial.c is only safe when
omap_serial_init_port with mux data is being used.
