Subject[PATCH] dz: Update Kconfig description
 Reformat the Kconfig entries and update descriptions for accuracy.  
Select the driver by default for configurations of interest. For the
curious: 32BIT means only 32-bit DECstations support the device, not that
the driver is not 64-bit clean; I have not checked that either though.

If you say Y here, it will be possible to use a serial port as the

If unsure, say Y.
