There are still in-kernel callers of this function, so I don't think
it's safe to remove just yet, otherwise the build will break:

drivers/char/mwave/mwavedd.c: return serial8250_register_port(&uart);
drivers/misc/ibmasm/uart.c: sp->serial_line = serial8250_register_port(&uport);
drivers/net/ethernet/sgi/ioc3-eth.c: serial8250_register_port(&port);
drivers/tty/serial/of_serial.c: ret = serial8250_register_port(&port);

I'm stopping here on this series, I've only applied the one that added
the comment, that seems to be the only one that compiled properly :(

Care to redo these please?
