Hi!

> This patch some small hooks into the normal serial core so that a uart
> can be unregistered to be exclusively used for KGDB.  These changes
> allow for registering and unregistering a port with a struct
> uart_port. From that point on KGDB does raw accesses to the serial
> IO ports it has taken over.
