+What:  register_serial/unregister_serial
+When:  December 2005
+Why:   This interface does not allow serial ports to be registered against
+       a struct device, and as such does not allow correct power management
+       of such ports.  8250-based ports should use serial8250_register_port
+       and serial8250_unregister_port instead.
