SubjectRe: PNPACPI probes serial twice, messes up serial console

I played with this last summer, but was too timid to finish it
and post it. My plan was to remove the legacy SERIAL_PORT_DFNS,
make platform devices for them, and only register the platform
devices in the absence of PNP.

My motivation at the time was to prevent 8250 from claiming IRDA
devices that happened to live at legacy UART addresses. I also
wanted to make IRDA (smsc-ircc2 in my case) smart enough to use
PNP to locate its devices, since 8250 would no longer claim them.

Here's the dusty patch (against 2.6.18-rc1-mm2). If it seems
like a reasonable thing to do, I can update it, polish it up,
add a changelog, and post it.
