Since this series.
8250_lpss will be enabled as long as user doesn't enable EXPERT and
_explicitly_ _disables_ it.

Same is applied to SERIAL_8250_PCI. If you look at the default kernel
configurations such as i386_default you don't find that option there.

Btw, I have to clean up such in my branches.

So, currently it works in such way that user enables SERIAL_8250 and
_dependencies_, which are PCI (for SERIAL_8250_PCI) or PCI && X86 (for
SERIAL_8250_LPSS) and drivers will be built automatically on the same
level (m or y) as SERIAL_8250.

Nevertheless, user may _disable_ them if needed using EXPERT option.
