confusion regarding UART config and source files

   i know this has come up before but, if i understand correctly, given
that UART support is moving from (at least in my case)
arch/ppc/8xx_io/uart.c to drivers/serial/cpm_uart, is there any need
to keep the

   [ ] Use UART

entry in the MPC8xx CPM Options menu?

   also, if one looks in drivers/serial/cpm_uart/Makefile, there's a
test for the CONFIG_CPM2 variable which doesn't seem to exist anymore;
certainly, a recursive grep doesn't show anything ever setting it,
and grep showed a few other files that test the apparently obsolete


p.s.  and i assume that comment at the top of the cpm_uart/Makefile
that reads,

# Makefile for the Motorola 8xx FEC ethernet controller

is just one of those ubiquitous cut and paste glitches. :-)
