Get rid of the custom OCTEON UART probe code and use 8250_dw instead.

The first patch just gets rid of Ralf's Kconfig workarounds for the
real problem, which is OCTEON's inclomplete serial support.

Then we just make minor patches to 8250_dw, and rip out all this
OCTEON code.

Since the patches are all interdependent, we might want to merge them
via a single tree (perhaps Ralf's MIPS tree).

Looks good - I was trying to come up with a kludge good enough for 3.10;
this may be a bit too large ...

At this point I think it is fine if some random configs for OCTEON fail to build in v3.10.

I was thinking that this would be for 3.11
