iMX6ULL UART in DCE-Mode is not working.

I am using Toradex Colibri iMX6ULL System-on-Module (MCIMX6Y2CVM08AA) with our custom designed PCB. We found out we have accidentally swapped Tx and Rx lines in the PCB and the on-board peripherals won't work for us. By default, imx6ull colibri is configured in DTE-MODE (in imx6ull-colibri.dtsi file). We have our board level dts file which includes `imx6ull-colibri.dtsi` file. The UARTs which needs to be swapped (or configured in DCE Mode) are UART5 and UART2. Whenever in my board level dts file, I delete the property dte-mode defined in imx6ull-colibri.dtsi file and redefine pinctrl-0 property to point to right pinctrl node (pinctrl_uart5_own) having right configuration for DCE mode, then UART5 doesn't work. If I use pinctrl_uart5_own pinctrl node with dte-mode property defined, then UART5 works perfectly. Same happens with UART2. Please help.

 

 

My top level (board level) dts is given below:

 

/dts-v1/;
