you tell me actually. Are you using the H:4 transport or do you have an extra protocol layer / framing below it. If you do, then use your own driver, but if the transport is H:4 with vendor packets and vendor setup, then btuart.c (which is not yet upstream) should be your target.

For the MTK hardware it was obvious that it was better served as a separate driver. For QCA serial it really depends on how much extra protocol you have to run. So this might be an exercise in trying QCA serial as a separate driver and then go from there.

It is clear that the baggage from hci_ldisc.c etc is in the way for serdev based systems.
