    If one does
    $ git grep -n "\<\(CONFIG_\)\?SERIAL_CONSOLE\>" | grep -v defconfig

    one gets a few hits (summarized):
    - arch/m68k/Kconfig.devices: discussed here;
    - arch/sparc/Kconfig: apparently unused, and can be dropped;
    - arch/xtensa/Kconfig and arch/xtensa/platforms/iss/console.c: the only
    other current usage (note that the "S6105" platform, mentioned in the
    Kconfig file, seems not to use it);
    - drivers/staging/serial/68360serial.c: uses CONFIG_SERIAL_CONSOLE, but
    I don't see how it can actually be set for that driver;
    - drivers/tty/amiserial.c: discussed here.

    I see nothing universal about it: two independent usages, one in
    */iss/console.c and one in */amiserial.c. So I'd say these can be
