Like others have said, a monolithic patch like this is really hard to
review. Please split it up, there are several logical ways it could be
cut, drivers vs base platform support, etc.

First reaction from just browsing through it:

* Lots of SillyCaps, i.e. codingstyle issues, especially in the
  bestcomm code
* No need to have filenames at top of files (they're even wrong in some
* You reinvented pr_debug() (everyone loves doing this, myself included)
* Some hardcoded baudrate stuff in the serial driver. Should probably
  be passed in from somewhere -- device tree?
* Network drivers should be posted to netdev, not the arch list

More thorough review would be easier to do with split-up patches.
