I tried compiling 2.6.3 for a MPC850 based board today, and got the same problem
with uart.c (as well as a few other minor errors). However, I have trouble getting
the 2.5 uart.c file by bitkeeper, can somebody please send it to me by (private) email?

I also noticed that the Kconfig file, as well as the uart.c file has very few options
to support custom pin assigments, for example I couldn't configure SCC2 as
Ethernet and at the same time SCC3 as serial. Is someone working on this, or
must I do this myself?
And what about hardware handshake signals, like RTS/CTS, does anyone
have that working?
