    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.

    Arnd
