No, that's fine.

If they are different SoCs, then it would be likely be a different clock
that is connected to the UART.

A better solution is to use the new DT clock bindings to replace the
clock lookup in the source code. Have a look at
git://git.linaro.org/people/mturquette/linux.git to see how others
do this in new kernels.
