Correct, unless SERIAL_8250_FOL=n of course.

Yep, that works also. New patch below.

This should probably be aced by Paul to ensure he's cool with it being
a module now.

serial: fix Kconfig for Freescale 16550

next-20111212 breaks with linking a pmac32_defconfig with:
drivers/built-in.o: In function `fsl8250_handle_irq':
(.text+0x7ba74): undefined reference to `serial8250_modem_status'
drivers/built-in.o: In function `fsl8250_handle_irq':
(.text+0x7baa4): undefined reference to `serial8250_tx_chars'
drivers/built-in.o: In function `fsl8250_handle_irq':
(.text+0x7bab4): undefined reference to `serial8250_rx_chars'

Caused by:
9deaa53 serial: add irq handler for Freescale 16550 errata.

pmac32_defconfig results in SERIAL_8250_FSL=y but SERIAL_8250=m so
8250_fsl.c doesn't link properly for the kernel.

This makes SERIAL_8250_FSL tristate.
