Are the *_serial.h files intended as extensions for asm-ppc/serial.h or
as complete replacements for it? If they are extensions then adding
#include <platform_serial.h> to asm-ppc/serial.h is enough. If they are
complete replacements then the code is a little harder, but not much.
*.c files include only <asm/serial.h>. In platform *_serial.h files,
#define REPLACES_PPC_SERIAL_H. In asm-ppc/serial.h,
... default ppc serial definitions
Do that once and forget about it, instead of needing #ifdef CONFIG for
each platform throughout the code.
