I don't have a strong opinion on the name but it is part of the user
API and can be set from the command line  : 

  -global driver=ast2600-a3,property=serial-hd0,value=5

I would prefer something like "uart-default" which makes more sense.

This is called from the reset execution path which is a bit special.
The use of qdev_get_machine() should be avoided when possible.

Look at the "dram" property of the SoC.
