Can we disable CONFIG_SERIAL_8250_DMA from omap2plus_defconfig? As
of right now, it's the only way I can use the Bluetooth. There are
#ifdef's in the 8250-omap driver, so it looks like some of the hooks
are there, but if it's incomplete, it seems like we shouldn't enable
this config option by default yet.
