Well, the idea here was to split the stuff that is commonly used
from the obsolete drivers.

BTW, the bfin_jtag_comm.c looks less obsolete than the rest of those
drivers, so I wasn't completely sure whether or not to move it into
the same place as the others.
My impression was that it should actually be converted into an hvc
driver as a cleanup and moved to drivers/tty/hvc. It can probably
get reduced to one third of its size if you do that.
