at the risk of jumping on on this, this patch would be affected by the 
changes i made to Kconfig, and i've already listed (to myself) the 
changes that are represented by this fix.  (see previous post, in 
which i asked a few more annoying questions. :-)

if you want, i can throw together the patch for this.  as i see it, 
the changes are

   1) modify Kconfig to remove choice of "Use UART"
   2) modify Makefile to remove inclusion of uart.o
   3) remove uart.c entirely

is that about it?
